Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and distressed, needy and desiring.
Preserve my life, for I am godly and dedicated; O my God, for I trust in You leaning and
believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, without fear or doubt.
Be merciful and gracious to me,
O Lord, for to You do I cry all the day. Make me, Your servant, to rejoice,
O Lord, for to You do I lift myself up. For You, O Lord, are good, and ready to forgive our
trespasses, sending them away, letting them go completely and forever;
You are abundant in mercy and loving-kindness to all those who call upon You.
Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; and listen to the cry of my supplications.
In the day of my trouble I will call on You, for You will answer me
I have cried to You for help by day; at night I am in Your presence. Let my prayer come
before You and really enter into Your presence; incline Your ear to my cry!
For I am full of troubles, and my life draws near the place of the dead!
My eye grows dim because of sorrow and affliction. Lord, I have called daily on You;
I have spread forth my hands to You.
Earnestly remember me, O Lord, when You favor Your people!
O visit me also when You deliver them, and grant me Your salvation!
Blessed happy, fortunate, to be envied are those who observe justice treating others fairly
and who do right and are in right standing with God at all times.
Verse to stand on:
This spoke to my heart and I feel so encouraged. I love the scriptures! I love how David can express what I can’t. I love how he was just like all of us, hurting, crying, pleading with God! We all go through seasons, uncomfortable changes, trials and when scripture is presented in a way we can understand our heart leaps with joy!
