A reflection on Psalm 143 - Prayer for Deliverance from Enemies

A Psalm of David.

1 Hear my prayer, O LORD;
    give ear to my supplications in your faithfulness;
    answer me in your righteousness.

2 Do not enter into judgment with your servant,
    for no one living is righteous before you.

3 For the enemy has pursued me,
    crushing my life to the ground,
    making me sit in darkness like those long dead.

4 Therefore my spirit faints within me;
    my heart within me is appalled.

5 I remember the days of old,
    I think about all your deeds,
    I meditate on the works of your hands.

6 I stretch out my hands to you;
    my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Selah

7 Answer me quickly, O LORD;
    my spirit fails.
Do not hide your face from me,
    or I shall be like those who go down to the Pit.

8 Let me hear of your steadfast love in the morning,
    for in you I put my trust.
Teach me the way I should go,
    for to you I lift up my soul.

9 Save me, O LORD, from my enemies;
    I have fled to you for refuge.

10 Teach me to do your will,
    for you are my God.
Let your good spirit lead me on a level path.

11 For your name’s sake, O LORD,
    preserve my life.
In your righteousness bring me out of trouble.

12 In your steadfast love cut off my enemies,
    and destroy all my adversaries,
    for I am your servant.
