86 Please listen, Lord, and answer my prayer! I am poor and helpless. 2 Protect me and save me because you are my God. I am your faithful servant, and I trust you. 3 Be kind to me! I pray to you all day. 4 Make my heart glad! I serve you, and my prayer is sincere. 5 You willingly forgive, and your love is always there for those who pray to you. 6 Please listen, Lord! Answer my prayer for help. 7 When I am in trouble, I pray, knowing you will listen.
8 No other gods are like you; only you work miracles. 9 You created each nation, and they will all bow down to worship and honor you. 10 You perform great wonders because you alone are God.
11 Teach me to follow you, and I will obey your truth. Always keep me faithful. 12 With all my heart I thank you. I praise you, Lord God. 13 Your love for me is so great that you protected me from death and the grave.
14 Proud and violent enemies, who don’t care about you, have ganged up to attack and kill me. 15 But you, the Lord God, are kind and merciful. You don’t easily get angry, and your love can always be trusted. 16 I serve you, Lord, and I am the child of one of your servants. Look on me with kindness. Make me strong and save me. 17 Show that you approve of me! Then my hateful enemies will feel like fools, because you have helped and comforted me.
