Prayer for Deliverance from Enemies

A Psalm of David.

1Hear my prayer, O Lord;

give ear to my supplications in your faithfulness;

answer me in your righteousness.

2Do not enter into judgment with your servant,

for no one living is righteous before you.

3For the enemy has pursued me,

crushing my life to the ground,

making me sit in darkness like those long dead.

4Therefore my spirit faints within me;

my heart within me is appalled.

5I remember the days of old,

I think about all your deeds,

I meditate on the works of your hands.

6I stretch out my hands to you;

my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.   Selah

7Answer me quickly, O Lord;

my spirit fails.

Do not hide your face from me,

or I shall be like those who go down to the Pit.

8Let me hear of your steadfast love in the morning,

for in you I put my trust.

Teach me the way I should go,

for to you I lift up my soul.

9Save me, O Lord, from my enemies;

I have fled to you for refuge.

10Teach me to do your will,

for you are my God.

Let your good spirit lead me

on a level path.

11For your name’s sake, O Lord, preserve my life.

In your righteousness bring me out of trouble.

12In your steadfast love cut off my enemies,

and destroy all my adversaries,

for I am your servant.
