Quite a number of the Psalms that David wrote reflect particular circumstances he was in, and this is one: he is being pursued by Saul and feigns insanity before King Achish to escape. He says, "I prayed to the LORD, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces" (Psalms 34:4-5 NLT). We may feel we're going insane through circumstances, but prayer remains the go-to for us all.
