Praying with Psalm 5

Hear my words, O Lord! Listen to me sigh. Attend to the sound of my cries, my King and my God, for to You do I pray. In the morning, You hear my voice. In the morning, I lay my pleas before You and expectantly await Your answer. O God, You do not delight in wickedness. Nothing evil can live in You. Arrogant people won’t be close to You. You hate all wrongdoing. Your truth destroys all lies. You despise violence and deceit. But because of Your overflowing love and kindness, I can enter Your house to worship You in the sanctuary. Oh, Lord, I need You to lead me or my foes and failures will overtake me! Make Your way clear and obvious. Let all foul talk, lying mouths, and flattering tongues be silenced and driven away for such sins show rebellion against You. But let all who take refuge in You be glad. Let them celebrate and sing Your praises. Spread Your protection over all who love Your name. For You bless the righteous, O Lord. You shield them wit
