Confident Prayer for Forgiveness and Guidance

1Of David.

I

I wait for you, O LORD; I lift up my soul 2to my God. j Pss 86, 4; 143, 8 . In you I trust; do not let me be disgraced; k Ps 71, 1 . do not let my enemies gloat over me. 3No one is disgraced who waits for you, l Ps 22, 6; Is 49, 23; Dn 3, 40 . but only those who lightly break faith. 4Make known to me your ways, LORD; teach me your paths. m Pss 27, 11; 86, 11; 119, 12. 119, 35; 143, 8. 143, 10 . 5Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my savior. For you I wait all the long day, because of your goodness, LORD.* 6Remember your compassion and love, O‐LORD; for they are ages old. n Sir 51, 8 . 7Remember no more the sins of my youth; o Jb 13, 26; Is 64, 8 . remember me only in light of your love.

8Good and upright is the LORD, who shows sinners the way, 9Guides the humble rightly, and teaches the humble the way. 10All the paths of the LORD are faithful love toward those who honor the covenant demands. 11For the sake of your name, LORD, pardon my guilt, though it is great. 12Who are those who fear the LORD? God shows them the way to choose. p Prv 19, 23 . 13They live well and prosper, and their descendants inherit the land. q Ps 37, 9. 37, 29 . 14The counsel of the LORD belongs to the faithful; the covenant instructs them. 15My eyes are ever upon the LORD, who frees my feet from the snare. r Pss 123, 1. 2; 141, 8 .

III

16Look upon me, have pity on me, for I am alone and afflicted. s Pss 86, 16; 119, 132 . 17Relieve the troubles of my heart; bring me out of my distress. 18Put an end to my affliction and suffering; take away all my sins. 19See how many are my enemies, see how fiercely they hate me. 20Preserve my life and rescue me; do not let me be disgraced, for I trust in you. 21Let honesty and virtue preserve me; I wait for you, O‐LORD. 22Redeem Israel, God,* from all its distress!
