Context and Meaning: All three of today's psalms are written by David. Psalm 15 is the life that all Christians should strive to live. Psalm 16 reminds us that the Lord is the one true God. We can take refuge in Him and draw on His strength because He will never abandon us. Psalm 17 is identified as a prayer of David. It was likely written during one of the many trials in his life. He calls upon the Lord to hear his prayer and to answer his request. Then he thanks the Lord for the answer He will provide. When you ask for the Lord's help, do you show such faith?
