Psalm 60:1-Psalm 61:1 - Prayer In Difficult Times
1 O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us; thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again. 2 Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it; heal its breaches, for it shakes. 3 Thou hast showed thy people hard things; thou hast made us to drink the wine of shaking. 4 Thou hast given a banner to those that fear thee that they raise up for the truth. Selah. 5 That thy beloved may be delivered, save with thy right hand and hear me.
6 God has spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem and mete out the valley of Succoth. 7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of my head; Judah is my lawgiver; 8 Moab is my washpot; over Edom I will cast out my shoe; Philistia, triumph thou because of me.
9 Who will bring me into the strong city? Who will lead me into Edom? 10 Surely thou, O God, who had cast us off; and thou, O God, who did not go out with our armies. 11 Give us help from trouble, for vain is the salvation of man. 12 Through God we shall do valiantly, for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
1 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
