. . . according to Your lovingkindness; according to the multitude of Your tender mercies. . . (Psalm 51:1)
After the prophet Nathan confronted him about his adultery with Bathsheba and subsequent murder of her husband, David’s head dropped and his throat tightened. His lips dried and hands shook. As a result, David prayed a prayer in a minor key. The poet king said, “Lord, have mercy on me.” There was nothing silly or superfluous about his request. Likewise, all of us will come to a point when we say like David, “Lord, have mercy.” It will not be superfluous, but it will be from the depths of our souls. We will need our Lord’s active pity.
