Precious Thoughts For the Disheartened

Hear my prayer, O God: Give ear to the words of my mouth

For strangers have risen up against me, and the mighty have sought after my soul:

And they have not God before their eyes.

For behold, God is my helper, and the Lord is the protector of my soul

Turn back evil upon mine enemies and destroy them in Thy truth

Behold, he hath been in labor with injustice; he hath conceived sorrow and brought forth iniquity.

I will freely sacrifice unto Thee, and, will give thanks to Thy name,O Lord, for it is good.

For Thou please deliver me out of all my troubles; deliver my soul from wicked lips and from a deceitful tongue …

I have lifted up my eyes unto the hills from whence my help shall come

They that sow in tears, shall reap in joy …

Show us Thy mercy Lord;; and grant us Thy salvation

I will hearken what the Lord shall say within me, for He will speak peace with His people.

And He heard my prayers, and brought me out of the pit of misery and the deep mire.

And He set my feet upon a rock, and directed my steps.

We fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God; despise not our petitions in our necessities, but ever deliver us from all evil, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

My help is from the Lord Who made heaven and earth.
