A Psalm of David.
1 Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications! In Your faithfulness answer me, and in Your righteousness.
2 Do not enter into judgment with Your servant, for in Your sight no one living is righteous.
3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul; he has crushed my life to the ground; he has made me dwell in darkness, like those who have long been dead.
4 Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is distressed.
5 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your works; I muse on the work of Your hands.
6 I spread out my hands to You; my soul longs for You like a thirsty land. Selah
7 Answer me speedily, O LORD; my spirit fails! Do not hide Your face from me, lest I be like those who go down into the pit.
8 Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, for in You do I trust; cause me to know the way in which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to You.
9 Deliver me, O LORD, from my enemies; in You I take shelter.
10 Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.
11 Revive me, O LORD, for Your name’s sake! For Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.
12 In Your mercy cut off my enemies, and destroy all those who afflict my soul; for I am Your servant.
Help me God even though I don’t deserve it. I might be a hot mess, but as long as I’m your hot mess there is hope. Teach me to be less hot messy.
