An Early Morning Prayer) (Written by David when he was running from his son Absalom.) 3 1I have a lot of enemies, LORD. Many fight against 2 me and say, “God won't rescue you!” 3But you are my shield, and you give me victory and great honor. 4I pray to you, and you answer from your sacred hill. 5I sleep and wake up refreshed because you, LORD, protect me. 6Ten thousand enemies attack from every side, but I am not afraid. 7Come and save me, LORD God! Break my enemies' jaws and shatter their teeth, 8because you protect and bless your people.
