1 Jehovah hear thee in the day
Confession & Catechism Explanatory Notes
Messiah Prayed for, and Prayed to, by His Waiting People
It seems that David was about to lead his armies against their enemies. In the first five verses, his subjects prayed for him and the victory, which by faith, they envisaged. To have such a prayer-supporting people encourages David in v. 6, to believe that God would be his strength and salvation. Then from v. 7 onwards, the national chorus once again petitions the Lord with confidence. David shadows a greater King, who would know deliverance and victory. Christ’s people ought then to pray for His victory in the earth, and the overthrow of the enemies of His kingdom.
