Introduction: A Psalm of David that has been compared to a present day “National Anthem.” It was probably sung before the nation went to war to help them all focus on the LORD.
(See 2 Samuel 12:26-31).
I. The Nation Fervently Prays to the LORD for the King (vs.1-5).
II. The King Responds with Confidence in the LORD (vs.6-8).
His response has prophetic implication to an ultimate fulfillment in Christ “his anointed”
III. Concluding Prayer (vs.9)
* We are blessed by the historical context -Prayer for David
* We marvel at the prophetic implication – Prayer for the Messiah
* We can learn to pray by this example – Prayer for God’s servants today.
