A Prayer for Help (After Psalm 86)

Hear my prayer,

 O Lord, and answer me,
for I am helpless and weak.
 Save me from death,
 because of my love for you.

 You are my God, be merciful to me.

 I pray to you all day long.
 Listen, Lord, to my prayer;
 hear my cries for help.

 I call to you in times of trouble,
 and you hear my prayers.

 Make your servant glad, O Lord,
 because my prayers go up to you.

 Turn to me and have mercy on me,
 strengthen me and save me,
 because you, O Lord,
are merciful and loving, always patient, 
always kind and faithful.

 You are good to us and forgiving,
 full of constant love for all who pray to you.

 Teach me, Lord, your ways,
 and I will obey you faithfully.
 Teach me to serve you
 with complete devotion.

 I will praise you with all my heart,
 I will proclaim your greatness forever!
