Psalm for Prayer - August 19, 2019

Psalm 71:1–6 (ESV)

1 In you, O Lord, do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame! 

2 In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; incline your ear to me, and save me! 

3 Be to me a rock of refuge, to which I may continually come; you have given the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress. 

4 Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of the unjust and cruel man. 

5 For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth. 

6 Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is continually of you.
