Psalm 61

     O God, I know you hear my cry for help even when I am far from you. My heart is overwhelmed with life and battling my enemies. Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I, to the shelter, the strong tower you have provided for my protection. I long to stay close to you, sheltered beneath your wings like chicks in the care of mother hen.

     You have brought me into your kingdom; I know your promises apply to me!

     Lord, give us godly leaders who rely on your wisdom, your love, your faithfulness and your protection from wrongdoing. We long for the King who lives forever to take his throne and rule the earth forever!

     I trust you; I know you have heard my vows of obedience – vows requiring your strength to be fulfilled. With your anointing I will sing praise to your name and fulfill my vows day after day.

– Personalized from the original Hebrew
