David asks Yahweh to listen to him (Ps 4:1-4:1)

To the choirmaster leader, with stringed instruments, a psalm of David.

Answer me!

When I call,

O God of my right!

You gave me room

When I was in distress.

Be gracious to me,

Hear my prayer.”

This Psalm 4 has a leader or choirmaster in charge with stringed instruments used. This is also a psalm of David, but without any particular circumstances. It is a cry for help or a lament. David wanted God to answer him. God gave him room when he was upset. He wanted God to pity him or be gracious to him. The biggest thing is that he wanted God to hear his prayer.
