Vindicate me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation;
O deliver me from deceitful and unjust man!
For You are the God of my strength; why have you rejected me?
Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy hill And to Your dwelling places.
Then I will go to the altar of God, To God my exceeding joy;
And upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God.
Why are you in despair, O my soul?
And why are you disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.

Why are you despair, O my soul?
Taken from Psalm 43. A prayer for deliverance...
