|Prayer for Deliverance and Guidance|
|A Psalm of David.|
| ||HEAR my prayer, O Jehovah; give ear to my supplications:|
In thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.
| ||And enter not into judgment with thy servant;|
For in thy sight no man living is righteous.
| ||For the enemy hath persecuted my soul;|
He hath smitten my life down to the ground:
He hath made me to dwell in dark places, as those that have been long dead.
| ||Therefore is 1 my spirit overwhelmed within me;|
My heart within me is desolate.
| ||I remember the days of old;|
I meditate on all thy doings;
I muse on the work of thy hands.
| ||I spread forth my hands unto thee:|
My soul thirsteth after thee, as a weary land. [Selah
| ||Make haste to answer me, O Jehovah; my spirit faileth:|
Hide not thy face from me,
Lest I become like them that go down into the pit.
| ||Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning;|
For in thee do I trust:
Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk;
For I lift up my soul unto thee.
| ||Deliver me, O Jehovah, from mine enemies:|
I 2 flee unto thee to hide me.
| ||Teach me to do thy will;|
For thou art my God:
Thy 3 Spirit is good;
Lead me in the 4 land of uprightness.
| ||Quicken me, O Jehovah, for thy names sake:|
In thy righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.
| ||And in thy lovingkindness cut off mine enemies,|
And destroy all them that afflict my soul;
For I am thy servant.
