Morning Prayer for Help
1 I have so many enemies, Lord,
so many who turn against me!
2 They talk about me and say,
“God will not help him.”

3 But you, O Lord, are always my shield from danger;
you give me victory
and restore my courage.
4 I call to the Lord for help,
and from his sacred hill he answers me.

5 I lie down and sleep,
and all night long the Lord protects me.
6 I am not afraid of the thousands of enemies
who surround me on every side.

7 Come, Lord! Save me, my God!
You punish all my enemies
and leave them powerless to harm me.
8 Victory comes from the Lord
may he bless his people.
