Psalms 143

1Lord, hear my prayer. Listen to my prayer. And then answer my prayer. Show me that you are truly good and loyal. 2Don’t judge me, your servant. Never, in all my life, could I ever be judged innocent. 3But my enemies are chasing me. They have crushed my life into the dirt. They are pushing me into the dark grave, like people who died long ago. 4I am ready to give up. I am losing my courage. 5But I remember the things that happened long ago. I am thinking about the many things you did. I am talking about the things you did with your great power! 6Lord, I lift my arms and pray to you. I am waiting for your help, like a dry land waiting for rain. 7Hurry, answer me Lord! I have lost my courage. Don’t turn away from me. Don’t let me die and become like the dead people lying in the grave. 8Lord, show me your true love this morning. I trust you. Show me the things I should do. I put my life in your hands! 9Lord, I come to you for protection. Save me from my enemies. 10Show me what you want me to do. You are my God. Let your good Spirit lead me over level ground. 11Lord, let me live, so people will praise your name. Show me that you are truly good, and save me from my enemies. 12Lord, show me your love, and defeat my enemies who are trying to kill me. Why? Because I am your servant.
