|Prayer for Deliverance|
| ||JUDGE me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation:|
Oh deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
| ||For thou art the God of my strength; why hast thou cast me off?|
Why go I mourning because 1 of the oppression of the enemy?
| ||Oh send out thy light and thy truth; let them lead me:|
Let them bring me unto thy holy hill,
And to thy tabernacles.
| ||Then will I go unto the altar of God,|
Unto God my 2 exceeding joy;
And upon the harp will I praise thee, O God, my God.
| ||Why art thou cast down, O my soul?|
And why art thou disquieted within me?
Hope thou in God; for I shall yet praise him,
Who is the help of my countenance, and my God.
