Catechesis Notes for the Week — Praying the Psalms: Psalm 17—Prayer for Faithfulness to the Lord’s Word and Salvation—Psalm 17 is an example of praying according to the First Petition, “Hallowed be Thy Name.”  God’s Word and those who trust in it, pray according to it, and cling to the righteousness of Christ above all else will endure assaults from false teachers, slanderers of the truth, the arrogant and self-righteous.  All of these enemies of God’s Word and of the faithful Christian are in league with Satan, the arch-enemy of the Gospel of Christ.  David teaches us to cry out to the Lord for the strength He promises to give against the malevolent deceit of those who would assault the faith of Christians.  He bids us to pray, not for the things of this world which will pass away, but for the righteousness of Christ and the gift of salvation that will never pass away.
