A Prayer Based on Psalm 43
Defend us, O God. Argue our case against those people who don’t know you. We trust that you will protect us against those who follow evil instead of you.
God, you are our place of safety. You do not desire that we suffer this sadness that evil brings on us.
Send your light and your truth to guide us, lead us to your holy mountain, to your home.
We want to go to your altar, to you O God, you, who make us so very happy. God, our God, may we sing praises to you!
Why are we so sad? Why, then, are we upset? We tell ourself, “Wait for God’s help! We will again have a chance to praise you, our God, the one who will save us.”
