A Heart Like David...

Such a beautiful prayer from the heart of David...crying out to God in trust, belief and humility.  May we all have a heart like David...Selah...

"Incline Your ear, O Lord, and answer me;
For I am afflicted and needy.

Preserve my soul, for I am a godly man;
O You my God, save Your servant
who trusts in you.

Be gracious to me, O Lord,
For to you I cry all day long.

Make glad the soul of Your servant,
For to You, O Lord, I lift up my

For You, Lord, are good, and ready
to forgive,
And abundant in lovingkindness to
all who call upon You.

Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;
And give heed to the voice of my supplications!

In the day of my trouble I shall call
upon you,
For You will answer me.

There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord,
Nor are there any works like Yours.

All nations whom You have made
shall come and worship
before You, O Lord,
And they shall glorify Your name.

For You are great and do wondrous deeds;
You alone are God.

Teach me your way, O Lord;
I will walk in Your truth;
Unite my heart to fear Your name.

I will give thanks to you, O Lord my
God, with all my heart,
And will glorify Your name forever."

Psalm 86:1-12
