What does Psalm 18:3 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 18:3

I will call upon the Lord
In prayer, for fresh mercies, and further appearances of himself, and discoveries of his grace and favour;

[who is worthy] to be praised;
for the perfections of his nature, the works of his hands, his providential goodness, and more especially for his covenant grace and blessings in Christ. The Targum is,

``in praise, or with an hymn, I pray before the Lord;''

agreeably to the rule the apostle gives, ( Philippians 4:6 ) ; and this prayer was a prayer of faith, as follows;

so shall I be saved from mine enemies:
which was founded upon past experience of God's goodness to him in distress, when he called upon him, as the next words show.
