11 Sing to Yahveh , who dwells in Zion; proclaim his deeds among the nations. 12 Because the one who holds people accountable for bloodshed remembers them; he does not forget the cry of the oppressed.
Previously, the psalmist had declared that God would destroy the enemies of his people, rendering them a forgotten memory. But now, the psalmist says that God himself will not forget the cry of the oppressed. How comforting it is to know that your prayers are being remembered.
I don’t expect God to always give me what I ask for. Sometimes he knows better what I need for now. But that does not mean that God is ignoring my request. My prayers are important to him. He never forgets what I am asking for.
