I prayed, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.
When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands, and I would not be comforted. … I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. … I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. … Yet you heard my cry for mercy when I called to you for help. … God, who answered me in the day of my distress and who has been with me wherever I have gone. … I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. … The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. … Call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me. … Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me.
Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me. I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. … God has surely listened and has heard my prayer. Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me! … I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you. … My heart rejoices in the Lord; for I delight in your deliverance. … In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
