The context indicates that David prayed (1 Samuel 30:8 "And David inquired of the Lord,"). He was "greatly distressed" and sought comfort from God. The word comfort is derived from two Latin words that together mean "with strength" so we get relief from our distress and are comforted (strengthened) when we read God's word and seek His will for our lives.
