A Prayer for Deliverance

13 How long? Lord, will you forget me forever?[a]
    How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I struggle in my soul at night
    and have sorrow in my heart during the day?
        How long will my enemy rise up against me?
Look at me!
    Answer me, Lord, my God!
Give light to my eyes!
    Otherwise, I will sleep in death;
Otherwise, my enemy will say,
    “I have overcome him;”
Otherwise, my persecutor will rejoice
    when I am shaken.
As for me, I have trusted in your gracious love,
    my heart will rejoice in your deliverance.
I will sing to the Lord,
    for he has dealt bountifully with me.
