Morning Prayer of Trust in God.

A Psalm of David, when [a]he fled from his son Absalom.

Lord, how (A)my enemies have increased!
Many are rising up against me.
Many are saying of my soul,
“There is no (B)salvation for him in God.” Selah

But You, Lord, are (C)a shield around me,
My (D)glory, and the One who (E)lifts my head.
I was crying out to the Lord with my voice,
And He (F)answered me from (G)His holy [b]mountain. Selah
[c]I (H)lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the Lord sustains me.
I will (I)not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have (J)set themselves against me all around.

(K)Arise, Lord; (L)save me, my God!
For You [d]have (M)struck all my enemies on the [e]cheek;
You [f]have (N)shattered the teeth of the wicked.
[g](O)Salvation belongs to the Lord;
May Your (P)blessing [h]be upon Your people! Selah
