Psalm 86 – Prayer in Time of Distress

Psalm 86 is a prayer and cry to God for help in times of distress and worry.

1 Incline your ear, Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and oppressed.

2 Preserve my life, for I am devoted; save your servant who trusts in you. You are my God;

3 be gracious to me, Lord; to you I call all the day.

4 Gladden the soul of your servant; to you, Lord, I lift up my soul.

5 Lord, you are good and forgiving, most merciful to all who call on you.

6 Lord, hear my prayer; listen to my cry for help.

7 On the day of my distress I call to you, for you will answer me.

8 None among the gods can equal you, O Lord; nor can their deeds compare to yours.

Psalm 86 – Prayer in Time of Distress

9 All the nations you have made shall come to bow before you, Lord, and give honor to your name.

10 For you are great and do wondrous deeds; and you alone are God.

11 Teach me, Lord, your way that I may walk in your truth, single-hearted and revering your name.

12 I will praise you with all my heart, glorify your name forever, Lord my God.

13 Your mercy to me is great; you have rescued me from the depths of Sheol.

14 O God, the arrogant have risen against me; a ruthless band has sought my life; to you they pay no heed.

15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in mercy and truth.

16 Turn to me, be gracious to me; give your strength to your servant; save the son of your handmaid.

17 Give me a sign of your favor: make my enemies see, to their confusion, that you, Lord, help and comfort me.
