Mar. 13. Prayer for Survival

Ps. 55:1-23

One of the deepest wounds that a person can suffer is the betrayal of a friend. David had suffered that injury many times. The hatred of Saul and the treason of his own son, Absalom were two of those incidents. His life was in constant peril. He poured out his fears before the Lord and prayed for His salvation. His prayers were constant—evening, morning and noon. David concluded his psalm with the confidence that God would sustain him and bring his enemies “down to the pit of destruction…But I will trust in You.”
