A Need Expressed--a need fulfilled!
When we have a need, we speak to people who we believe can help us. It could be a brother, a sister, mother, father, son or daughter. It could be a friend to whom we address such a problem. Sometimes, such help is available, sometimes, it is not. That is a fact of life.
But believers have learned or should learn to do something else--to trust God above any human source, for any reason. While son and daughter may fail, and mother and father may fail, either because such help is not in their power to give or are unwilling to do so even if they can, God remains the Source for the solution. Even when things appear to be happening by chance, because we cannot directly see the role of God in what is going on, the believer who has invited God into the situation should know that He will work it out. So, for the believer, to express a need is to expect that the Great God is listening, and will provide the answers, and answers which invariably praise His Name.
When we ask, are we speaking to God? The answer is yes. It is for such a reason that the Bible says not to throw away our confidence--confidence in approaching God, and confidence and trust in Him that He will be our God in all situations. When we address our needs to God, He listens, He cares, and provides.
