Psalm 74 was believed to be written by Asaph who was a leader of one of the temple choirs or one of his descendants since it was most likely written after the fall of Jerusalem in 586 B.C. In this Psalm, the author pleads for God’s help to defend the people from the enemy. This is a great example for us to know it is ok for us to plead to God for help and to know He hears us. Psalm 74:12 says, But you, O God, are my king from of old; you bring salvation upon the earth. Trust in God and know He hears our requests. He will answer in His timing and according to His will.
