Psalm for prayer - June 6, 2016

Psalm 5:1–8 (ESV)

1Give ear to my words, O Lord; consider my groaning.

2Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to you do I pray.

3O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.

4For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you.

5The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers.

6You destroy those who speak lies; the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

7But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love, will enter your house. I will bow down toward your holy temple in the fear of you.

8Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.
