David’s Prayer Constancy

Handwritten page from the book of Psalms chapter 10 verse 14 through chapter 13 verse 6.

Synopsis     Psalms 10:14-13:6     8/23/2021 

Psalms 10 through 13 are all psalms written by King David.  

Initially, David reflected on God’s care for orphans and poor people. In it, he petitions God to hold accountable people who take advantage of the poor and desperate. 

Next, David reflected on the difference between a man’s thinking and the way God thinks. God, he observed, was immutable. Always in His holy temple, God is unchanged regardless of life’s controversies on earth.  

After this, David cried out to God in a moment of desolation. At that moment, he felt alone and abandoned. And so, he encouraged himself by remembering God’s faithfulness. With this, he anticipated the judgement awaiting evildoers. 

David’s Prayer Constancy 

David’s psalms express a wide range of experiences and emotions. But through all the ups and downs, the one constant is his relationship to God. He prayed about anything and everything. He shared his life entirely with the God whom he had come to know personally.  

Constant Prayer 

If God is my friend, then I’m probably going to mention him occasionally in conversation.  

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1
