Prayer In Problems Psalms 13:9
David did not take credit for the writing of Scripture; he gave credit to the Lord. 2 Samuel 23:1-2
This prayer describes David’s intimate spiritual communion with God.
David rejoices in a 3-Fold SECURITY: v.5
God besets him “behind” PAST
God besets him “before” FUTURE
God’s hand is “laid” upon him PRESENT
This prayer is divided into 4 sections of 6 verses:
It is a tribute to God’s OMNISCIENCE
It starts by saying he had been SEARCHED v.1
and requested to be SEARCHED and KNOWN v23
In the beginning of the prayer, David is concerned
with his OUTER life.
By the time he journeys on with God in prayer, he
asks to have his INNER life searched & REVEALED.
“Search me!” A brief, but thorough cry.
Other such cries from Scripture:

Judges 16:28 “STRENGTHEN ME”
Song of Solomon 2:5 “STAY ME”
