NET Bible



Two things I ask from you;

do not refuse me before I die:

Remove falsehood and lies far from me;

do not give me poverty or riches,

feed me with my allotted portion of bread,

lest I become satisfied and act deceptively

and say, “Who is the LORD?”

Or lest I become poor and steal

and demean the name of my God.

Pro 30:7-9



Relent, LORD, rescue me!

Deliver me because of your faithfulness!

I say to the LORD, “You are the Lord,

my only source of well-being.”

I call to you for you will answer me, O God.

Listen to me!

Hear what I say!

Accomplish awesome, faithful deeds,

you who powerfully deliver those who look to you for protection from their enemies.

Protect me as you would protect the pupil of your eye!

Hide me in the shadow of your wings!

Teach me your paths!

Guide me into your truth and teach me.

For you are the God who delivers me;

on you I rely all day long.

Remember your compassionate and faithful deeds, O LORD,

for you have always acted in this manner.

Do not hold against me the sins of my youth or my rebellious acts!

Because you are faithful to me, extend to me your favor, O LORD!

The LORD is both kind and fair;

that is why he teaches sinners the right way to live.

May he show the humble what is right!

May he teach the humble his way!

The LORD always proves faithful and reliable

to those who follow the demands of his covenant.

I have asked the LORD for one thing -

this is what I desire!

I want to live in the LORDʼs house all the days of my life,

so I can gaze at the splendor of the LORD

and contemplate in his temple.

Psa 27:4



Hear me, O LORD, when I cry out!

Have mercy on me and answer me!

My heart tells me to pray to you,

and I do pray to you, O LORD.

Do not reject me!

Do not push your servant away in anger!

You are my deliverer!

Do not forsake or abandon me,

O God who vindicates me!

Even if my father and mother abandoned me,

the LORD would take me in.

Psa 27:7-10



“Whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, because they love to pray while standing in synagogues and on street corners so that people can see them. Truly I say to you, they have their reward. But whenever you pray, go into your room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you. Mat 6:5-6



When you pray, do not babble repetitiously like the Gentiles, because they think that by their many words they will be heard. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. Mat 6:7-8



Teach me how you want me to live;

lead me along a level path because of those who wait to ambush me!

Do not turn me over to my enemies,

for false witnesses who want to destroy me testify against me.

Where would I be if I did not believe I would experience

the LORDʼs favor in the land of the living?

Psa 27:11-13



Hear my plea for mercy when I cry out to you for help,

when I lift my hands toward your holy temple!

Psa 28:2



Finally, be strengthened in the Lord and in the strength of his power. Clothe yourselves with the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. For this reason, take up the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand your ground on the evil day, and having done everything, to stand. Stand firm therefore, by fastening the belt of truth around your waist, by putting on the breastplate of righteousness, by fitting your feet with the preparation that comes from the good news of peace, and in all of this, by taking up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. With every prayer and petition, pray at all times in the Spirit, and to this end be alert, with all perseverance and requests for all the saints. Pray for me also, that I may be given the message when I begin to speak - that I may confidently make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may be able to speak boldly as I ought to speak.

Eph 6:10-20



In you, O LORD, I have taken shelter!

Never let me be humiliated!

Vindicate me by rescuing me!

Listen to me!

Quickly deliver me!

Be my protector and refuge,

a stronghold where I can be safe!

For you are my high ridge and my stronghold;

for the sake of your own reputation you lead me and guide me.

You will free me from the net they hid for me,

for you are my place of refuge.

Into your hand I entrust my life;

you will rescue me, O LORD, the faithful God.

Psa 31:1-5

I declare, “You are my God!”

You determine my destiny!

Rescue me from the power of my enemies and those who chase me.

a strong tower that protects me from the enemy.

I will be a permanent guest in your home;

I will find shelter in the protection of your wings. (Selah)

Donʼt let the pit devour me!
