Tap here for a video meditation on Psalm 143.
The millstone of persecution presses at David’s soul, grinding it into the flour of prayer. The burdens of life loosen more and more supplications. The outpourings stretch him to God. Waves of comfort crescendo as David yearns for God’s help. The very longing for God is a sign of God’s presence.
Find those points of connection between you and David. Does the Lord bring anyone to mind who is similarly burdened? A fervent praying of this psalm will be the conduit for the stream of grace to reach that one’s heart.
If only Rehoboam had prayed this psalm of his grandfather, David, with all his heart! Will you pray the psalm?
