Day 11 — Psalm 61

Prayer of an exile

For the choirmaster, for strings, of David.

God, hear my cry for help,
listen to my prayer!
From the end of the earth I call to You,
with sinking heart.

To the rock too high for me,
lead me!
For You are my refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy.

Let me stay in Your tent forever,
taking refuge in the shadow of Your wings, selah.
You, God, accept my vows,
You grant me the heritage of those who fear Your name.

Let the king live on and on,
prolong his years, generation on generation.
May he sit enthroned in God's presence for ever!
Assign Your love and faithfulness to guard him!

So I shall always sing of Your name,
fulfilling the vows I have taken, day after day.

Next… Day 12 — Psalm 62
