A Prayer for Protection

43 God, defend me.
    Argue my case against those who don’t follow you.
    Save me from liars and those who do evil.
God, you are my strength.
    Why have you rejected me?
Why am I sad
    and troubled by my enemies?
Send me your light and truth
    to guide me.
Let them lead me to your holy mountain,
    to where you live.
Then I will go to the altar of God,
    to God who is my joy and happiness.
I will praise you with a harp,
    God, my God.

Why am I so sad?
    Why am I so upset?
I should put my hope in God
    and keep praising him,
    my Savior and my God.
