Rejoicing in Answered Prayer

A Psalm of David.
  1To You I will cry, O Lord my Rock:
   Do not be silent to me,
   Lest, if You are silent to me,
   I become like those who go down to the pit.
   2Hear the voice of my supplications
   When I cry to You,
   When I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.
  3Do not take me away with the wicked
   And with the workers of iniquity,
   Who speak peace to their neighbors,
   But evil is in their hearts.
   4Give them according to their deeds,
   And according to the wickedness of their endeavors;
   Give them according to the work of their hands;
   Render to them what they deserve.
   5Because they do not regard the works of the Lord,
   Nor the operation of His hands,
   He shall destroy them
   And not build them up.
  6Blessed be the Lord,
   Because He has heard the voice of my supplications!
   7The Lordismy strength and my shield;
   My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped;
   Therefore my heart greatly rejoices,
   And with my song I will praise Him.
  8The Lordis their strength,
   And He is the saving refuge of His anointed.
   9Save Your people,
   And bless Your inheritance;
   Shepherd them also,
   And bear them up forever.
