Psalm 143:1-6 NCV

1 Lord, hear my prayer; listen to my cry for mercy. Answer me because you are loyal and good.
2 Don't judge me, your servant, because no one alive is right before you.
3 My enemies are chasing me; they crushed me to the ground. They made me live in darkness like those long dead.
4 I am afraid; my courage is gone.
5 I remember what happened long ago; I consider everything you have done. I think about all you have made.
6 I lift my hands to you in prayer. As a dry land needs rain, I thirst for you. Selah
