The Poet’s Prayer: Psalm 5 – A Prayer for Guidance

The Poet's Prayer with Poetess Denise Fyffe banners

A Prayer for Guidance

1. Give ear to my words, O Lord,
Consider my meditation.

2. Give heed to the voice of my cry,
My King and my God,
For to You I will pray.

3. My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord;
In the morning I will direct it to You,
And I will look up.

4. For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness,
Nor shall evil dwell with You.

5. The boastful shall not stand in Your sight;
You hate all workers of iniquity.

6. You shall destroy those who speak falsehood;
The Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

7. But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy;
In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple.

8. Lead me, O Lord, in Your righteousness because of my enemies;
Make Your way straight before my face.

9. For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;
Their inward part is destruction;
Their throat is an open tomb;
They flatter with their tongue.

10. Pronounce them guilty, O God!
Let them fall by their own counsels;
Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions,
For they have rebelled against You.

11. But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name
Be joyful in You.

12. For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous;
With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
