Psalm 61

Praying for Israel and her king.

1–5 Praying for protection
6–7 Praying for the king
8 Promise to praise

  • What does verse 2 tell you about how David was feeling? What did he do? What can you learn from this?
  • What is the biblical basis for the prayer in verses 6–7? (Hint—2 Sam 7:1–17)
  • What does David do with what he knows (v. 7)? How does he respond? What can you learn from this with the truths and promises you have from God?
