Psalm 143

"Hear my prayer, O Lord, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.
And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified.
 For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.
Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.
 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands.
 I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.
 Hear me speedily, O Lord: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.
 Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
 Deliver me, O Lord, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.
 Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
 Quicken me, O Lord, for thy name's sake: for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.
 And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant."

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
