v 8-10 – Have you been wronged? attacked? accused? David understood what it meant to have enemies, but he left it in God’s hands to deal with them. Notice that it is an acceptable way to pray, to ask God to deal justly with those who practice injustice.

v 20 – What areas in your life require God’s wisdom and God’s power? Ask for wisdom and God will grant it! Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with God’s power as you obey Him.

v 21 – Apply this verse in your prayers as you read a story from the news about world events. How does knowing God is sovereign over all kings change how you pray?

v 22-23 – Would you like to have wisdom that helps to discover what others cannot see? God’s light penetrates the darkness. Praise Him for this quality.
