Hear me, Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and oppressed.
Preserve my life, for I am loyal; save your servant who trusts in you.
You are my God; pity me, Lord; to you I call all the day.
Gladden the soul of your servant; to you, Lord, I lift up my soul.
Lord, you are kind and forgiving, most loving to all who call on you.
Lord, hear my prayer; listen to my cry for help. In the time of trouble I call, for you will answer me.
Psalm 86: 1-7
