Here we have a psalm that is a collection of the writer’s favorite verses from psalms 57 and 60. It’s a wonderful prayer on this middle day of Holy Week, sometimes called “Spy Wednesday,” recalling Judas’s plot against Jesus. The psalm is a confident song of victory in the midst of trouble.
Pray this psalm as though you are praying for the whole world that all the nations of the earth will come to adore and love their suffering King who soon will be triumphant.

from today’s reading:
My heart is steadfast, O God. v. 1
