Another example of prayer. David seems to have suffered both from sickness and the taunts of his enemies. His sickness gave them occasion to point to him as one ‘smitten of God’.
- Verses 1-7. Explain in your own words the state of David’s heart and mind as he made his prayer.
What does he
(a) confess to God, and
(b) expect from God?
- Note in verses 8-10 how David has come to an assurance of answered prayer and certain deliverance- an assurance which he openly confers before God and men.
Have you had any similar experience?
