Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;
answer me, for I need Your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to You.
Save me, for I serve You and trust You.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on You constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to You.
O Lord, You are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for Your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to You whenever I’m in trouble,
and You will answer me.
Teach me Your ways, O Lord,
that I may live according to Your truth!
Grant me purity of heart,
so that I may honour You.
With all my heart I will praise You, O Lord my God.
I will give glory to Your name forever,
for Your love for me is very great.
– Psalm 86:1-7,11-13 (NLT)
Have mercy on me, O Lord, and hear my urgent cry.
Teach me Your ways, O Lord, that I may live according to Your truth.
Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honour You.
