Why Revive Me?

Psalm 143 has been one of those passages where nearly every verse has spoken to me.  I have written on it several times; just plug 143 in the search bar above for a taste.
Why Revive Me?
Psalm 143:11 picks up a theme that I have seen many times in the Word.  David is imploring God to revive him.  Look at the basis for that request.  David asks God to revive him for the sake of God’s name.  The request David makes for revival is not based on David’s need, rather it is concern for God’s name.  David’s revival will reflect well on God.  Of course it will not hurt David.

Too often in my prayer, really most often, it is for my sake that I am crying out to God.  My prayer is centered on me; what I want, need.  It is about my program, not God’s.

David rebukes me here.  I have much to learn concerning prayer.
