Psalm 13, Help me be more like David

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?

    How long will you hide your face from me?

How long must I wrestle with my thoughts

    and day after day have sorrow in my heart?

    How long will my enemy triumph over me?

Look on me and answer, Lord my God.

    Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,

and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”

    and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

But I trust in your unfailing love;

    my heart rejoices in your salvation.

I will sing the Lord’s praise,

    for he has been good to me.


Father God, again I crave the faith of David. In his saddest times, he laid everything before you. He told you all his sorrows and begged for exactly what he wanted.


But no matter what your answer, he gave you praise.


Lord, grow my heart to be more like David. 


  1. Amen!!! I often marvel at David's ability to praise the Lord, even at his lowest moments!!! Lord, give me a grateful heart and breath to praise You at all times!!! Thanks for this reminder, Kathy!! (Erma)
