Hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy.
Be Your faithful and righteous self and come to my relief.
Don’t bring me, Your servant, to judgment – no one living is righteous compared to You.
The enemy pursues me, crushes me, makes me hide and live at night. I’m tired and depressed.
I remember the past – I meditate on what You have done.
I ask Your help, praise Your name. My soul thirsts for You.
Hurry and answer, my spirit faints with longing.
Don’t hide from me or I’ll be like those who go to hell.
Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You.
Show me which way I should go. I lift up my soul to You to make it easier for You to show me.
Rescue me from my enemies – I hide myself in You so my enemies will have a harder time finding me.
Teach me to do Your will – You are my God. May Your good Spirit lead me on level ground, steady in You.
For Your name’s sake, preserve my life.
In Your righteousness, bring me out of trouble.
In Your unfailing love, silence my enemies, destroy my foes. I am Your servant.
