Prayer for Protection, Guidance and Pardon.

A Psalm of David.

1 To You, O  Lord, I a  lift up my soul.
2O my God, in You b  I trust,
Do not let me c  be ashamed;
Do not let my d  enemies exult over me.
3Indeed e  none of those who wait for You will be ashamed;
Or Let those...be ashamed
Those who g  deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed.

4 h  Make me know Your ways, O  Lord;
Teach me Your paths.
5Lead me in i  Your truth and teach me,
For You are the j  God of my salvation;
For You I k  wait all the day.
6 l  Remember, O  Lord, Your compassion and Your lovingkindnesses,
For they have been
Or everlasting
,
n  from of old.
7Do not remember the o  sins of my youth or my transgressions;
p  According to Your lovingkindness remember me,
For Your q  goodness’ sake, O  Lord.

8 r  Good and s  upright is the  Lord;
Therefore He t  instructs sinners in the way.
9He u  leads the
Or afflicted
humble in justice,
And He w  teaches the
Or afflicted
humble His way.
10All the paths of the  Lord are y  lovingkindness and truth
To z  those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
11For aa  Your name’s sake, O  Lord,
ab  Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.

He will ad  instruct him in the way he should choose.
13His soul will ae  abide in

14The
Or counsel or intimacy
,
ak  secret of the  Lord is for those who fear Him,
Or And His covenant, to make them know it
And He will am  make them know His covenant.
15My an  eyes are continually toward the  Lord,
For He will
Lit bring out
,
ap  pluck my feet out of the net.

16 aq  Turn to me and be gracious to me,
For I am ar  lonely and afflicted.
