God of hope, hear my prayer. Listen to my plea for help – don’t turn away from me in my time of distress. Bend down to listen, and answer me quickly, for I call to You. My heart is sick, and I have lost my appetite over this court case. I lie awake at night, wondering if the judge will rule in my favor. My opponents have been taunting me and cursing me, and tears flow down my face. Rise up and have mercy on me, I pray. Help me as You have promised. Amen.
