Psalm 143:1-6 GW

1 O LORD, listen to my prayer. Open your ears to hear my urgent requests. Answer me because you are faithful and righteous.
2 Do not take me to court for judgment, because there is no one alive who is righteous in your presence.
3 The enemy has pursued me. He has ground my life into the dirt. He has made me live in dark places like those who have died long ago.
4 That is why I begin to lose hope and my heart is in a state of shock.
5 I remember the days long ago. I reflect on all that you have done. I carefully consider what your hands have made.
6 I stretch out my hands to you in prayer. Like parched land, my soul thirsts for you. Selah
