Psalm 5:12 O Lord, hear me as I pray, pay attention to my groaning. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for I pray to no one but you.
I looked up groanings.. it means To voice a deep, inarticulate sound, as of pain, grief, or displeasure. This really got me to thinking. We so often go to God for help and for forgiveness or when we are worried about a sick loved one...but we tend to go to people for our pain and displeasure. We moan and groan to people. When we do this are we asking them to solve our problems. I never really thought of moaning and groaning to people as a prayer to them, but what if God sees it that way? When I do go to God with my moaning and groaning He gives me an answer, maybe not one I always want to hear. But it is always the right answer. How much better would our lives be if we, like David, would learn to go to God with our goraning instead of groaning to the people around us? I think it would be life changing. I must do better!
