A Prayer for Protection HEBREW TITLE: By David. 61 1Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer! 2In despair and far from home I call to you! Take me to a safe refuge, 3for you are my protector, my strong defense against my enemies. 4Let me live in your sanctuary all my life; let me find safety under your wings. 5You have heard my promises, O God, and you have given me what belongs to those who honor you. 6Add many years to the king's life; let him live on and on! 7May he rule forever in your presence, O God; protect him with your constant love and faithfulness. 8So I will always sing praises to you, as I offer you daily what I have promised.
