Psalm 13 New International Version

A Prayer for Help in Trouble

13 [1]How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2  How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? 3  Look on me and answer, Lord my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death, 4  and my enemy will say, "I have overcome him," and my foes will rejoice when I fall. 5  But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. 6  I will sing the Lord's praise, for he has been good to me.
