A Prayer for ProtectionPs 61 Hebrew title: By David.

611Hear my cry, O God;

listen to my prayer!

2In despair and far from home

I call to you!

Take me to a safe refuge,

3for you are my protector,

my strong defence against my enemies.

4Let me live in your sanctuary all my life;

let me find safety under your wings.

5You have heard my promises, O God,

and you have given me what belongs to those who honour you.

6Add many years to the king's life;

let him live on and on!

7May he rule for ever in your presence, O God;

protect him with your constant love and faithfulness.

8So I will always sing praises to you,

as I offer you daily what I have promised.
