Psalm 86

1 Lord, hear me and answer me. I am poor and needy. 2 Keep my life safe. I am faithful to you. You are my God. Save me. I trust in you. 3 Lord, show me your favor. I call out to you all day long. 4 Bring joy to me. Lord, I worship you. 5 Lord, you are good. You are forgiving. You are full of love for all who call out to you. 6 Lord, hear my prayer. Listen to my cry for your favor. 7 When I’m in trouble, I will call out to you. And you will answer me. 8 Lord, there’s no one like you among the gods. No one can do what you do. 9 Lord, all of the nations you have made will come and worship you. They will bring glory to you. 10 You are great. You do wonderful things. You alone are God. 11 Lord, teach me how you want me to live. Then I will follow your truth. Give me a heart that doesn’t want anything more than to worship you. 12 Lord my God, I will praise you with all my heart. I will bring glory to you forever. 13 Great is your love for me. You have kept me from going down into the grave. 14 God, proud people are attacking me. A gang of mean people is trying to kill me. They don’t care about you. 15 But Lord, you are a God who is tender and kind. You are gracious. You are slow to get angry. You are faithful and full of love. 16 Turn to me and show me your favor. Give me strength and save me. 17 Prove your goodness to me. Then my enemies will see it and be put to shame. Lord, you have helped me and given me comfort.
