Psalm 25, 26 - Day 366 (link to today's reading)
Scripture: Psalm 26:1-12
Commentary: The opening verse contains the three basic elements of the psalm and sets out, in summary form, the essence of the psalm as a whole: (1) prayer: “Judge me, O Lord”; (2) affirmation: “for I have walked …”; (3) certainty: “I shall not slip.” These three themes are taken up and developed in the subsequent verses of the psalm; (1) prayer: vv 2, 9–10, 11b; (2) affirmation: vv 3–8, 11a; (3) certainty: v 12.

Application; In his desperation, David declares his innocence and pleads for God to vindicate him of any wrongdoing. The psalms model for us the words to use to express our emotions of joy, hope, depression, frustrations, anger, etc.
Prayer: Lord, I come to Your altar, singing a song of thanksgiving...
