Prayer for Protection.  Psalm 61(v60)

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

1Hear my cry, O God,
listen to my prayer;
2from the end of the earth I call to thee, when my heart is faint.

Lead thou me to the rock that is higher than I;
3for thou art my refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy.

4Let me dwell in thy tent for ever!
Oh to be safe under the shelter of thy wings! Selah
5For thou, O God, hast heard my vows,
thou hast given me the heritage of those who fear thy name.

6Prolong the life of the king;
may his years endure to all generations!
7May he be enthroned for ever before God;
bid steadfast love and faithfulness watch over him!

8So will I ever sing praises to thy name,
as I pay my vows day after day.
