Psalm 86:9 All the nations you have made will come and bow down before you, Lord, and will honor your name.
Psalm 86:10 You see, you are great and perform wonders; you alone are God.
Psalm 86:11 Teach me your way, Yahveh, and I will live by your truth. Give me an undivided heart to fear your name.
Psalm 86:12 I will praise you with all my heart, Lord my God, and will honor your name permanently.
Psalm 86:13 You see, your covenant faithfulness for me is great, and you rescue my throat from the depths of Sheol.
Psalm 86:14 God, arrogant people have attacked me; a gang of ruthless men seek my throat. They do not allow you to guide them.
Psalm 86:15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger and abounding in covenant faithfulness and truth.
Psalm 86:16 Turn to me and be gracious to me. Give your strength to your servant; deliver the son of your female servant.

After rehearsing the seven reasons he expects God to answer his prayer, David now turns to express the seven things he expects to receive from God as a result of his prayer.

  • First, he knows that ultimately all the nations God has made will come and bow down before the Lord, and honor his name.
  • Second, he knows that God will teach him his way and give him an undivided heart to follow it.
  • Third, he knows that he will praise God wholeheartedly, and honor his name permanently.
  • Fourth, he knows that his throat will be rescued from Sheol (death will not have the final say).
  • Fifth, he knows God will deal with those who have attacked him.
  • Sixth, he knows that God will be gracious to him and give him strength and deliverance from this attack.
  • Seventh, he knows that God will help and comfort him by showing him a sign of his goodness, putting his enemies to shame.

When we pray, it is right to tell our Lord why we expect him to answer, and what kind of answers we expect.

LORD, thank you that you are a prayer answering God.
