A Prayer of Confidence1. Protect me, O God; I trust in you for safety.
2. I say to the Lord, "You are my Lord; all the good things I have come from you".
3. How excellent are the Lord's faithful people!
My greatest pleasure is to be with them.
4. Those who rush to other gods brings many troubles on themselves.
I will not take part in their sacrifices;
I will not worship their gods.
5.You, Lord,are all I have,
and you give me all I need;
6.How wonderful are your gifts to me;
how good they are!
7. I praise the Lord, because he guides me,
and in the night my conscience warns me.
8. I am always aware of the Lord's presence;
he is near, and nothing can shake me.
9. And so I am thankful and glad,
and I feel completely secure,
10. because you protect me from the
power of death.
I have served you faithfully,
and you will not abandon me to the world of the dead.
11. You will show me the path that leads to life;
your presence fills me with joy
and brings me pleasure for ever.
