In this Psalm, which focusses upon David, there are hints of Christ and His sufferings: Christ upon the cross experiencing being forsaken of the Father; Christ in Gethsemane praying in great anguish; Christ praising His Father in the High-Priestly prayer of John 17. And, yet, let us focus primarily upon David and the testing of his faith, which is also found within the context of prayer:

  1. Faith Tested To Breaking

  2. Faith Turns To Prayer

  3. Faith Tempered By Prayer
