Morning Prayer of Trust in God.

1 A Psalm of David, when (a)he fled from Absalom his son.
O Lord, how (A)my adversaries have increased!
Many are rising up against me.
Many are saying (b)of my soul,
“There is no (c)(B)deliverance for him in God.” (d)Selah.
But You, O Lord, are (C)a shield about me,
My (D)glory, and the One who (E)lifts my head.
I was crying to the Lord with my voice,
And He (F)answered me from (G)His holy (e)mountain. Selah.
(f)I (H)lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the Lord sustains me.
I will (I)not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have (J)set themselves against me round about.
(K)Arise, O Lord; (L)save me, O my God!
For You (g)have (M)smitten all my enemies on the (h)cheek;
You (i)have (N)shattered the teeth of the wicked.
(j)(O)Salvation belongs to the Lord;
Your (P)blessing (k)be upon Your people! Selah.
