In Psalm 86, David delights in the uniqueness of God. There is no other God like Yahweh, no other being who can perform such works. As a result, all the nations will recognize that Yahweh alone is God, and come to worship Him. David then personalizes this universal reality, and asks God to teach him His ways, so that David can glorify God accordingly. This worshipful meditation comes couched in David’s need: he is weak, persecuted, and troubled. He needs deliverance, mercy, and protection. But God is merciful and gracious, abounding in love, and so David cries out to Yahweh, the only God who saves.
