Old Testament David lays hold of God's faithfulness in hard times.

Psalm 40:11 You, O Lord, will not withhold Your compassion from me; Your loving-kindness and Your truth will continually preserve me. (NASB)

Someone wrote, this is not so much a prayer as it is an expression of confidence in the certainty of God's response.  It's helpful, in trying times, to remember past answers to prayer -- past occasions when the mercies and grace of God have enabled you to endure. 

"Loving-kindness" is a reference to God's covenant love -- His loyal love to Israel.  In spite of Israel's stubbornness, grumbling, and disobedience, the Lord had made a covenant with them and those promises would be kept.  When the clouds of trial gather, it's time, as a Christ-follower, to remind yourself that God is with you and will never leave or forsake you!
