A Prayer in Troubled Times

Of David.

28 Lord, my Rock, I call out to you for help.
    Do not be deaf to me.
If you are silent,
    I will be like those in the grave.
Hear the sound of my prayer,
    when I cry out to you for help.
I raise my hands
    toward your Most Holy Place.
Don’t drag me away with the wicked,
    with those who do evil.
They say, “Peace” to their neighbors.
    But evil is in their hearts.
Pay them back for what they have done.
    They have done evil.
Pay them back for what they have done.
    Give them their reward.
They don’t understand what the Lord has done
    or what he has made.
So he will knock them down
    and not lift them up.

Praise the Lord.
    He heard my prayer for help.
The Lord is my strength and shield.
    I trust him, and he helps me.
I am very happy.
    And I praise him with my song.
The Lord is powerful.
    He gives power and victory to his chosen one.
Save your people.
    Bless those who are your own.
    Be their shepherd and carry them forever.
