In Psalm 43:1, David asks God to judge, defend, and deliver him from the unjust and ungodly. Can Christians pray this?

It is always proper for Christians to pray for divine protection or deliverance from ungodliness. Jesus, himself, taught us to pray, “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” (Matthew 6:13)
