Psalm that Ash sent me this morning.

Psalm 143

1 Hear my prayer, O Lord ;
listen to my plea!
Answer me because you are faithful and righteous.

2 Don’t put your servant on trial,
for no one is innocent before you.

3 My enemy has chased me.
He has knocked me to the ground
and forces me to live in darkness like those in the grave.

4 I am losing all hope;
I am paralyzed with fear.

5 I remember the days of old.
I ponder all your great works
and think about what you have done.

6 I lift my hands to you in prayer.
I thirst for you as parched land thirsts for rain. 

7 Come quickly, Lord , and answer me,
for my depression deepens.
 Don’t turn away from me,
or I will die.

8 Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning,
for I am trusting you.
 Show me where to walk,
for I give myself to you.

9 Rescue me from my enemies, Lord ;
I run to you to hide me.

10 Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God.
 May your gracious Spirit lead me forward
on a firm footing.

11 For the glory of your name, O Lord , preserve my life.
 Because of your faithfulness, bring me out of this distress.

12 In your unfailing love, silence all my enemies
and destroy all my foes,
 for I am your servant.
