Psalms 11:1-2

1 I have taken refuge in Yahveh. How can you say to me, “Escape to the mountains like a bird! 2 “Because notice, the wicked ones are stringing bows; they put their arrows on bowstrings to shoot from the shadows at the ones whose hearts are upright.

The psalmist knows that there is no escape in mere flight. The only real escape is divine intervention. Perhaps we should pray less “help me escape” prayers and more God, show your power” prayers.
