Richmond High School Gang Rape Goes to Trial

     Please pray for a young woman from our church that was gang-raped after a school dance. It is hard to imagine reliving the events of that night during a trial. Let us send positive thoughts and prayers to her and her family. I hope for justice and complete healing of the victims.

PSALM 86 – A PRAYER OF DAVID

Psalm 86 – A Prayer of David

 

Incline thy ear, O Lord, and answer me,

for I am poor and needy.

Preserve my life, for I am godly;

save thy servant who trusts in thee.

Thou art my God; be gracious to me, O Lord,

for to thee do I cry all the day.

Gladden the soul of thy servant, for to thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

for thou O Lord, art good and forgiving,

abounding in steadfast love to all who call on thee.

Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;

Harken to my cry of supplication,

in the day of my trouble I call on thee,

for thou dost answer me.

(8) There is none like thee among the gods, O Lord,

nor are there any works like thine.

All the nations thou hast made shall come and bow down before thee,

O Lord, and shall glorify thy name.

For thou art great and doest wondrous things, thou alone art God.

(11) Teach me thy way, O Lord,

that I may walk in thy truth;

unite my hear to fear thy name.

I give thanks to thee, O Lord, my God, with all my heart,

and I will glorify thy name forever.

For great is thy steadfast love toward me;

Thou hast delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

(14) O God, insolent men have risen up against me;

a band of ruthless men seek my life,

and they do not set thee before them.

But thou, O Lord, art a God merciful and gracious,

slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

(16) Turn to me and take pity on me;

give thy strength to thy servant, and safe the son of thy handmaid.

Show me a sign of thy favor,

that those who hate me may see and be put to shame

because thou, Lord, hast helped me and comforted me.
