Prayer for guidance and protection
A Psalm of David.
Unto Ps. 86:4thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
O my God, I Ps. 34:8;Is. 28:16trust in thee: let me not be ashamed,
Ps. 13:4Let not mine enemies triumph over me.
Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed:
Let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
Ex. 33:13;Ps. 5:8Shew me thy ways, O Lord;
Teach me thy paths.
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me:
For thou art the God of my salvation;
On thee do I wait all the day.
Remember, O Lord, Ps. 103:17;Is. 63:15thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses;
For they have been ever of old.
Remember not Job 13:26;Jer. 3:25the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions:
Ps. 51:1According to thy mercy remember thou me
For thy goodness' sake, O Lord.
Good and upright is the Lord:
Therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
The meek will he guide in judgment:
And the meek will he teach his way.
All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth
Unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
Ps. 31:3;& 79:9For thy name's sake, O Lord,
Pardon mine iniquity; Rom. 5:20for it is great.
What man is he that feareth the Lord?
Ps. 37:23Him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
Prov. 19:23His soul shall dwell at ease;
And Ps. 37:11his seed shall inherit the earth.
Prov. 3:32;John 7:17The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him;
And he will shew them his covenant.
Ps. 141:8Mine eyes are ever towards the Lord;
For he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
Ps. 69:16Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me;
For I am desolate and afflicted.
The troubles of my heart are enlarged:
O bring thou me out of my distresses.
2 Sam. 16:12Look upon mine affliction and my pain;
And forgive all my sins.
Consider mine enemies; for they are many;
And they hate me with cruel hatred.
O keep my soul, and deliver me:
Let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me;
For I wait on thee.
Ps. 130:8Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
The basis of judgment
