“I have called upon You, for You will answer me, O God; incline Your ear to me, hear my speech.” (Psalm 17:6)
In this psalm, we encounter David imploring God for deliverance and graciousness in the face of an attack by a deadly enemy (most likely King Saul). An appreciation I have always had of David is his quickness to pray, in times that were bad as well as times that were good. Regardless of the circumstance, David was a man in regular communion with God through prayer. I hope that his example is one today that all of us likewise seek to emulate, that in the course of our daily routine there be a regular partaking of prayer and of seeking God’s grace and guidance. Further, let us seek to behold the confidence in which David approached the Lord, knowing fully His ability to deliver in the circumstance of difficulty and to answer the prayers of His own.
