A lot of the time, I hear people say you shouldn’t ask for things from God first thing when praying, God isn’t a genie and deserves our praise. I myself say it quite often! We say we need to praise and worship him first, and only then give our requests. This passage is quite the opposite. Right off the bat, something is being asked of God. It’s not even until halfway through that God is actually praised. What I see in this Psalm, is a mature relationship with God that doesn’t seem to miss a beat. One that is not afraid to urgently ask for God’s help. I see a man so in tune with God’s heart, that he just goes straight into asking. I see unwavering trust in the character of God. David isn't worried about offending God for asking right off the bat, but he knows that God will answer.
