Psalm 17:6-8

I call to you for you will answer me, O God. Listen to me! Hear what I say! Accomplish awesome, faithful deeds, you who powerfully deliver those who look to you for protection from their enemies. Protect me as you would protect the pupil of your eye! Hide me in the shadow of your wings!

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes. Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings

I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O God;Incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech. Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand,O You who save those who trust in You From those who rise up against them. Keep me as the apple of Your eye;Hide me under the shadow of Your wings,

I am praying to you because I know you will answer, O God. Bend down and listen as I pray. Show me your unfailing love in wonderful ways. By your mighty power you rescue those who seek refuge from their enemies. Guard me as you would guard your own eyes. Hide me in the shadow of your wings.

I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.  Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.  Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,


Lord God, Your Word is full of rich life-giving truths like this that we can offer to You in prayer; not only for ourselves, but for others as well. We praise You Lord, that You are a God who answers when we call! You hear our cries, and do not turn away from our needs. We come to You Lord as we are, because we cannot come as anything else before You: the one who knows us perfectly and sees all things. Create in us hearts that authentically desire to honor You with our lives, and to share the magnitude of Your greatness with those we meet. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
