Morning Prayer of Trust in God.
A Psalm of David. When he fled from Absalom his son.
1 O Lord, how my enemies have increased! Many are rising up against me.
2 Many are saying of me, “There is no help [no salvation] for him in God.” [a]Selah.
3 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory [and my honor], and the One who lifts my head.
4 With my voice I was crying to the Lord, and He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.
5 I lay down and slept [safely]; I awakened, for the Lord sustains me.
6 I will not be intimidated or afraid of the ten thousands who have set themselves against me all around.
7 Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God! For You have struck all my enemies on the cheek; You have shattered the teeth of the wicked.
8 Salvation belongs to the Lord; May Your blessing be upon Your people. Selah.Psalm 3:1-8 (AMP)
- Psalm 3:2 Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interlude or may have some other unknown meaning; and so throughout.
