All wise Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, thank you for the prayer lessons I can learn from David in Psalm 13. In verse one, You show me that David was totally honest with You about how he felt. Verse 1: “How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me?

Sometimes I think You are not going to be pleased if I tell You exactly how I feel. However, throughout the Bible You demonstrate that this isn’t true. You want me to have a close relationship with You, where everything is out in the open. You already know it all anyway.

Like David did, direct and encourage me to have faith and trust in You no matter how long I have to wait. Verse 3a: “Consider and hear me, O LORD my God; enlighten my eyes.” It is Your unfailing mercy that will bring me through to the other side of any crisis. Verse 5a: “But I have trusted in Your mercy.

When the pressure is on, encourage me to follow David’s example and not give in to a life of despair. It is a great blessing that as a child of Yours, I can be honest and share my most intimate feelings with You and trust in everything I know about You.

Like David, I can end up with praise and rejoicing in You. Verse 5b-6: “My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the LORD, because He has dealt bountifully with me.

In Jesus’ Name, thank you for the many powerful lessons in Your Word, the Bible. Amen.
