Devos of the Week: Psalm 17

“Hear me, Lord, my plea is just…” The Psalmist is confident the Lord God will answer his prayer (vs. 6) because his prayer does not flow from sin, evil, or violence; rather his prayer comes from a righteousness that follows in the ways of the Lord. Do you think there is prayer that is unjust? How so? Does God hear unjust prayers?  Can we confidently pray if we are consciously walking a different way than the way of God?  Save us Holy Spirit from faulty religion, presumption, and unjust prayers. Teach us to pray!
