Argue my case before committees that I cannot attend and protect me from judgmental people who look only for weakness and spin goodness into evil.
You are my refuge; my trusted friend; why does my testing go on and on?
Defend and deliver me cause from the doubts and anxieties that trouble me and leave me weak open to temptations and sins that I choose on my own.
Shower me in your light and truth, led me to your presence, the safe house where I can find rest.
Then, I will commune in your church and find sanctuary for my soul.
Trust in God, the one who saves and is worthy of praise. (Psalm 43).
Bless me with your vindication that I might vindicate those around me (Genesis 12:3).
In the power of your Holy Spirit and in Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
