Prayer for Protection, Guidance and Pardon.
A Psalm of David.
1To Thee, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
2O my God, in Thee I trust,
3Indeed, none of those who wait for Thee will be ashamed;
4Make me know Thy ways, O LORD;
5Lead me in Thy truth and teach me,
6Remember, O LORD, Thy compassion and Thy lovingkindnesses,
7Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
8Good and upright is the LORD;
9He leads the humble in justice,
10All the paths of the LORD are lovingkindness and truth
11For Thy name’s sake, O LORD,
12Who is the man who fears the LORD?
13His soul will abide in prosperity,
14The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him,
15My eyes are continually toward the LORD,
16Turn to me and be gracious to me,
17The troubles of my heart are enlarged;
18Look upon my affliction and my trouble,
19Look upon my enemies, for they are many;
20Guard my soul and deliver me;
21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,
22Redeem Israel, O God,
