Psalm 14: Authentic About How the World Is

Psalm 14 is Quoted by Paul and it sounds like a theological statement.  It is.  But, if we are learning to Answer God through the Psalms, then this is an observation turned prayer.  The world is a mess, Lord, would you put it back to rites?  Lord, everyone else seems crazy, but I cling to your promises.

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds,
there is none who does good.
The LORD looks down from heaven on the children of man,
to see if there are any who understand,
who seek after God.
They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt;
there is none who does good,
not even one.
Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers
who eat up my people as they eat bread
and do not call upon the LORD?
There they are in great terror,
for God is with the generation of the righteous.
You would shame the plans of the poor,
but the LORD is his refuge.
Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people,
let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.

(Psalm 14 ESV)
