Although David had an evident passion for God (Ps 143:1-2), he was admittedly aware of his own problems (Ps 143:3-6). David’s own unrighteousness could only be addressed with God’s righteousness. David’s persecutions, from within and without, had brought him to a place of weariness, hopelessness and fatigue.
In all of this, the psalmist made a plea to his God.
“Let me hear in the morning of Your steadfast love, for in You I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul.” (Ps 143:8)
David desperately needed reminding of God’s devotion and he needed recognition of God’s direction.
