Listen, Lord, and answer me,
for I am poor and needy.
Protect my life, for I am faithful.
You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you.
Be gracious to me, Lord,
for I call to you all day long.
Bring joy to your servant’s life,
because I appeal to you, Lord.
For you, Lord, are kind and ready to forgive,
abounding in faithful love to all who call on you.
Lord, hear my prayer;
listen to my plea for mercy.
I call on you in the day of my distress,
for you will answer me.
Lord, there is no one like you among the gods,
and there are no works like yours.
All the nations you have made
will come and bow down before you, Lord,
and will honor your name.
For you are great and perform wonders;
you alone are God. (v. 1-10 CSB)
I’m thankful for this psalm on this day. I’m sick today for the first time in over 14 months. It’s hard to bring my own words into focus, but God’s words are clear.
Father, I am poor and needy. Thank You for Your faithful love. You are great and perform wonders. Teach me Your way so that I can live by your truth. Give me an undivided mind to worship and fear Your name. You alone are God! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
