Psalm 143:8  Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love,
For I have put my trust in You.
Show me the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul.

Psalm 5:1-3 … Give ear to my words, O Lord,
Consider my complaint.
2 Listen to my cry for help
My King and my God,
For to You pray.
3 In the morning I lay my requests before You
And expectantly wait for Your answer
I will look up!

11 But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name
Be joyful in You.
12 For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous;
With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
