Prayers from the Psalms

Psalm 3

3  But you, LORD, are a shield  around me,   my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
4  I call out to the LORD,    and he answers me from his holy mountain.
5  I lie down and sleep;    I wake again,  because the LORD sustains me.
6  I will not fear  though tens of thousands   assail me on every side.
7  Arise,  LORD!   Deliver me,  my God!  Strike  all my enemies on the jaw;   break the teeth  of the wicked.
8  From the LORD comes deliverance.    May your blessing  be on your people.
