Friday 21 January 22

Hear me, Lord, my plea is just; listen to my cry.
Hear my prayer it does not rise from deceitful lips...
I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes.
Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings
