Psalm 143:1-6 NLT

1 A psalm of David. Hear my prayer, O LORD; listen to my plea! Answer me because you are faithful and righteous.
2 Don't bring your servant to trial! Compared to you, no one is perfect.
3 My enemy has chased me. He has knocked me to the ground. He forces me to live in darkness like those in the grave.
4 I am losing all hope; I am paralyzed with fear.
5 I remember the days of old. I ponder all your great works. I think about what you have done.
6 I reach out for you. I thirst for you as parched land thirsts for rain. Interlude
