A Morning Prayer

David sang this when he ran away from his son Absalom.

Lord, I have many enemies!
    Many people have turned against me.
Many people are talking about me.
    They say, “God won’t rescue him.” Selah

But, Lord, you are my shield.
    You are my wonderful God who gives me courage.
I will pray to the Lord.
    And he will answer me from his holy mountain. Selah

I can lie down and go to sleep.
    And I will wake up again
    because the Lord protects me.
Thousands of enemies may surround me.
    But I am not afraid.

Lord, rise up!
    My God, come save me!
You have hit my enemies on the cheek.
    You have broken the teeth of the wicked.
The Lord can save his people.
    Lord, bless your people. Selah
