(A psalm by David for the music leader.)

A Prayer for the Lord’s Help

13 How much longer, Lord,
    will you forget about me?
    Will it be forever?
    How long will you hide?
How long must I be confused
    and miserable all day?
    How long will my enemies
    keep beating me down?

Please listen, Lord God,
    and answer my prayers.
Make my eyes sparkle again,
    or else I will fall
    into the sleep of death.
My enemies will say,
    “Now we’ve won!”
    They will be greatly pleased
    when I am defeated.

I trust your love,
and I feel like celebrating
    because you rescued me.
You have been good to me, Lord,
    and I will sing about you.
