When we look at Psalms 17 and 18 side by side, we see that they go together. Psalm 17 is the prayer, and Psalm 18 is the praise for the answered prayer.
There are lessons to be learned about prayer from Psalm 17 and about praise from Psalm 18. Two main points that we should note are that Psalm 17 is the prayer of an innocent person, and the praise of Psalm 18 gives God the glory for His powerful deliverance. I envisioned flowers celebrating a victory!
There is much more to be learned about prayer and praise from these psalms! Watch my lecture below or listen by podcast.
