Psalm 143

Trusting a merciful God for deliverance.

1–4 Prayer for mercy in times of trouble
5–6 Confidence in prayer
7–10 Prayer for deliverance
11–12 Closing prayer of trust

  • How does remembering God’s acts in the past encourage trusting prayer in the present (vv. 5–6)?
  • “Level ground” (v. 10)—God would provide clear guidance and protection.
  • What is David’s reason and motivation for asking for God’s deliverance (v. 11)? How should this control your prayers?
