Been Meditating On........


Psalm 86

Hear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.
Guard my life, for I am devoted to You.
You are my God; save Your servant who trust in You.
Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I call to You all day long.
Bring joy to Your servant, for to You, O Lord, I lift my soul.

You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to You.
Hear my prayer, O Lord; listen to my cry for mercy. In the day of my trouble I
will call to You, for You will answer me.

Among the gods there is none like You, O Lord; no deeds can compare with Yours.
All the nations You have made will come and worship before You, O Lord; they
will bring glory to Your name. For You are great and do marvelous deeds; You along are God.

Teach me Your way, O Lord, and I will walk in Your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your name. I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart;
I will glorify Your name forever. For great is Your love toward me;
You have delivered me from the depths of the grave.

The arrogant are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless men seeks my life--men without regard for You.

But You, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Turn to me and have mercy on me; grant Your strength to Your servant and save the son of Your maidservant. Give me a sign of Your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for You, O Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
