Psalm 86: 1-7
Hear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you. Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you. Hear my prayer, O Lord; listen to my cry for mercy. In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.
These verses alone are a complete and beautiful prayer. I could say these words today and every day, to express my faith and love to God. David asks for protection and mercy. He asks for joy, knowing his very soul belongs to God. Today, let me live in this faith and love and protection. Amen
