Study Guide – Psalm 86:5-10

Psalm86-5-10

5 O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.

No pagan god is like you, O Lord.
None can do what you do!
All the nations you made
will come and bow before you, Lord;
they will praise your holy name.
10 For you are great and perform wonderful deeds.
You alone are God. NLT

 

 

Why would David, the writer of the psalm, say what he does in verse 5?

 

 

How do verses 6-7 relate to verse 5?

 

 

Read verses 8-10 and then describe the confidence that David has in the Lord.

 

::::: EQUIPPING CHALLENGE :::::

David came to his confidence in God through experiences of life and faith coupled with a vast amount of time spent personally with the Lord. What do you need to go through in life… and what do you need to do with the Lord… in order to make the comments in this section intimately your own?
