A Morning Prayer of Trust in God
3 1 O Lord , how my adversaries have increased ! Many are rising up against me. 2 Many are saying of my soul , "There is no deliverance for him in God ." Selah . 3 But You, O Lord , are a shield about me, My glory , and the One who lifts my head .
4 I was crying to the Lord with my voice , And He answered me from His holy mountain . Selah . 5 I lay down and slept ; I awoke , for the Lord sustains me. 6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me round about . 7 Arise , O Lord ; save me, O my God ! For You have smitten all my enemies on the cheek ; You have shattered the teeth of the wicked . 8 Salvation belongs to the Lord ; Your blessing be upon Your people ! Selah .
