Psalm116_5
Image from 365promises

Psalm 116:5 AMP … Gracious is the Lord, and [consistently] righteous; Yes, our God is compassionate{full of mercy}.

Call upon the Lord in faith –He 11:6
Use the faith you have{mustard seed} –Lk 17:6

Believe He will answer
On the basis of His nature/name.

The Lord is gracious –Ps 86:5,15
The Lord is righteous –Ps 119:137,145:17;Jer 12:1
The Lord is compassionate{full of mercy}.

Exodus 34:6-9 NASB … Then the Lord passed by in front of him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth. 7 who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations.” 8 Moses made haste to bow low toward the earth and worship. 9 He said, “If now I have found favor in Your sight, O Lord, I pray, let the Lord go along in our midst, even though the people are so obstinate, and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as Your own possession.”

Hebrews 4:16 NASB … Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Barnes’ Notes on Psalms 116:5
.
Gracious is the Lord – This fact was his encouragement when he called on God. He believed that God was a gracious Being, and he found him to be so. Compare the notes at Hebrews 11:6.
.
And righteous … – Just; true; faithful. This, too, is a proper foundation of appeal to God: not that we are righteous, and have a claim to his favor, but that he is a Being who will do what is right; that is, what is best to be done in the case. If he were an unjust Being; if he were one on whose stability of character, and whose regard for right, no reliance could be placed, we could never approach him with confidence or hope. In this sense we may rely on his justice – his justness of character – as a ground of hope. Compare the notes at 1 John 1:9 : “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.”
