A Prayer in Times of Trouble 43 1Show that I am right, God! Defend me against everyone who doesn't know you; rescue me from each of those deceitful liars. 2I run to you for protection. Why do you turn me away? Why must enemies mistreat me and make me sad? 3Send your light and your truth to guide me. Let them lead me to your house on your sacred mountain. 4Then I will worship at your altar because you make me joyful. You are my God, and I will praise you. Yes, I will praise you as I play my harp. 5Why am I discouraged? Why am I restless? I trust you, LORD! And I will praise you again because you help me, and you are my God.
