Mar. 22. Psalm of Penitence

Ps. 143:1-12

The psalmist, David called upon the Lord for merciful judgment since in His sight, no one is righteous. He asked God for revival to the days of old before he had been overwhelmed by devastation by his enemies. David called for speedy action lest he be destroyed soon. He prayed for God to show him the way to righteousness and to give him relief from his enemies. In humility, he prayed that God would teach him His will and lead him in the land of uprightness. “For I am Your servant.” We should be that humble.
