Text Information:

This paraphrase emphasizes the prayerful qualities of Psalm 17 by keeping the focus on the relationship between the psalmist and God, rather than denouncing the faults of the enemy. This is a helpful reminder that our prayers need to be grounded in honest and unpretentious faith.
