“Incline Your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and distressed, needy and desiring. Preserve my life, for I am godly and dedicated; O my God, save your servant, for I trust in You, leaning on and believing in You, committing all and confidently looking to You, without fear or doubt. Be merciful and gracious to me, O Lord, for to You do I cry all the day. Make me, Your servant, to rejoice, O Lord, for to You do I lift myself up.” – Psalm 86
