Catechesis Notes for the Week —Praying the Psalms: Psalm 13—A Prayer for Help When Satan and His Allies Attack Me—When the devil attacks us with evil and the troubles of life, we can become despondent and feel as if the Lord has abandoned us. There are many ways in which the devil assaults us. Every enemy of our faith is in league with the Evil One. Satan’s ultimate objective is to destroy our faith. David expresses what we all sometimes feel: that the Lord has forgotten us and abandoned us to the devil’s evil devices. The Lord never abandons the Baptized Christian. In the midst of his sense of helpless despair, David cries out to the Lord for help. He knows that the Lord will ultimately deliver him. If he must suffer the devil’s assaults, the God in whom he trusts will use these attacks to refine his faith and deepen his reliance upon the Lord’s mercy. “I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me.”
