“Come with great power, O God, and rescue me!
Defend me with your might.”
Psalm 54.1 NLT
“Great power” translates God’s name, which represents all God is and does. David needs deliverance from enemies (see subscript and v. 3). He asks God to hear him, v. 2, for he is sure of an answer, vv. 4-5.
Are you confident of God’s answer to your prayers? Does this motivate me to ask God? How often do I pray to God for deliverance, and how often do I trust in my own powers?
