Prayer in Time of Distress

1A prayer of David.

I

Hear me, LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and oppressed. 2Preserve my life, for I am loyal; save your servant who trusts in you. 3You are my God; pity me, Lord; to you I call all the day. 4Gladden the soul of your servant; to you, Lord, I lift up my soul. p Pss 25, 1; 143, 8 . 5Lord, you are kind and forgiving, most loving to all who call on you. q Jl 2, 13 . 6 LORD, hear my prayer; listen to my cry for help. r Pss 5, 2; 130, 1–2 . 7In this time of trouble I call, for you will answer me.

II

8None among the gods can equal you, O Lord; nor can their deeds compare to yours. s Pss 35, 10; 89, 9; Ex 15, 11; Dt 3, 24; Jer 10, 6 . 9All the nations you have made shall come to bow before you, Lord,and give honor to your name. t Ps 22, 28; Zec 14, 16; Rv 15, 4 . 10For you are great and do wondrous deeds; and you alone are God.

III

11Teach me, LORD, your way that I may walk in your truth, u Pss 25, 4; 26, 3; 27, 11; 119, 12. 119, 35; 143, 8. 143, 10 . single‐hearted and revering your name. 12I will praise you with all my heart, glorify your name forever, Lord my God. 13Your love for me is great; you have rescued me from the depths of Sheol. v Pss 30, 4; 40, 3; Jon 2, 7 . 14O God, the arrogant have risen against me; a ruthless band has sought my life; to you they pay no heed. 15But you, Lord, are a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger, most loving and true. w Pss 103, 8; 130, 7; 145, 8; Ex 34, 6 . 16Turn to me, have pity on me; give your strength to your servant; save this child of your handmaid. x Pss 25, 16; 116, 16; Wis 9, 5 . 17Give me a sign of your favor: make my enemies see, to their confusion, that you, LORD, help and comfort me.
