A Prayer for Help.  Psalm 143(v142)

A Psalm of David.

1Hear my prayer, O LORD;
give ear to my supplications!
In thy faithfulness
answer me, in thy righteousness!
2Enter not into judgment with thy servant;
for no man living is righteous before thee.

3For the enemy has pursued me;
he has crushed my life to the ground;
he has made me sit in darkness like those long dead.
4Therefore my spirit faints within me;
my heart within me is appalled.

5I remember the days of old,
I meditate on all that thou hast done;
I muse on what thy hands have wrought.
6I stretch out my hands to thee;
my soul thirsts for thee like a parched land. Selah

7Make haste to answer me, O LORD! My spirit fails!
Hide not thy face from me, lest I be like those who go down to the Pit.
8Let me hear in the morning of thy steadfast love,
for in thee I put my trust.
Teach me the way I should go,
for to thee I lift up my soul.

9Deliver me, O LORD, from my enemies!
I have fled to thee for refuge!
10Teach me to do thy will, for thou art my God!
Let thy good spirit lead me on a level path!

11For thy name's sake, O LORD, preserve my life!
In thy righteousness bring me out of trouble!

12And in thy steadfast love cut off my enemies,
and destroy all my adversaries, for I am thy servant.
