In this royal Psalm, David asks his people to pray for him and directs them in the areas where he most desires their prayers. Understanding David’s relationship to his people, we apply this Psalm to ourselves in the following areas:

  • The prayers we should be offering for our secular leaders.
  • The prayers we should be offering for our church leaders.
  • The prayers we should be offering for one another.

Finally, given that David is a type of Christ, we see how this Psalm applies to Him and we realize that as our Savior and our Great High Priest, His finished work is the solid basis for our confidence that God will hear and answer our prayers in all of these areas.
