“To you, O Lord, I call;
my rock, do not refuse to hear me,
as if you are silent to me I shall be
like those who go down to oblivion.
Hear the sound of my prayer
as I cry to you for help,
as I lift up my hands
toward your holy sanctuary.
Do not drag me away with the wicked
who speak peace with their neighbors
while mischief is in their hearts.
Repay them according to their work,
according to the evil of their deeds;
Repay them according to the work
of their hands, render them
their due reward.
Because they do not regard
the works of the Lord,
or the work of his hand,
he will break them down
and build them up no more.
O save your people, bless your heritage;
Be their shepherd and carry them forever.” ~ Psalm 28:1-5,9
Grace, Mercy, and Peace!
