The Lord is neigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth.
What a blessing it is to be in the presence of the Lord through prayer as prayers are the believer's communication with God. An active prayer life in the lives of believers is one where the believer's faith is activated and the sincerity of the prayer's heart is poured out to God. Heart-felt prayers are answered by God as they are effective and powerful.
Being in the presence of God through prayer, God and the believer establishes an intimacy where the believer get to know God on a personal basic and is assured of deliverance in the time of trouble as well as being given the desires of his or her heart (v. 19).
These questions come to mind, What would you give to be in the presence of God? How often do you pray and do you believe there is power in prayer? Do you believe that through prayer a close relationship is established between you and God? Do you believe that prayer is part of this spiritual warfare that believers are engaged in with Satan and his army?
Let me say that prayer is an active part of the conflict and when Satan sees believers praying he becomes afraid because he knows that the believer and God is on one accord and God's power is released through prayer.
Pray and stay in the presence of God.
