LORD, listen to my words, consider my groaning.
LORD, hear my just plea! Pay attention to my cry! Listen to my prayer, since it does not come from lying lips.
May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. To the Director: A Davidic Psalm.
Pay attention to my prayer, God, and do not hide yourself from my appeal.
Don't consider your maid servant a worthless woman. Rather, all this time I've been speaking because I'm very anxious and distressed."
Shepherd of Israel, listen! The one who leads Joseph like a flock, the one enthroned on the cherubim, display your glory.
In the same way, the Spirit also helps us in our weakness, since we do not know how to pray as we should. But the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans too deep for words,
For the Lord watches the righteous, and he pays attention to their prayers. But the Lord opposes those who do wrong."
And this is the confidence that we have in him: if we ask for anything according to his will, he listens to us.
