          Blfy: We (Catholics) have a song for that called “Eagle’s Wing” and I love to sing that.

        • Psalm 139
          For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

           1 O LORD, You have searched me and known me.

           2 You know my sitting down and my rising up;

                   You understand my thought afar off.

           3 You comprehend my path and my lying down,

                   And are acquainted with all my ways.

           4 For there is not a word on my tongue,

                   But behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.

           5 You have hedged me behind and before,

                   And laid Your hand upon me.

           6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;

                   It is high, I cannot attain it.  

                    

           7 Where can I go from Your Spirit?

                   Or where can I flee from Your presence?

           8 If I ascend into heaven, You are there;

                   If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.

           9 If I take the wings of the morning,

                   And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,

           10 Even there Your hand shall lead me,

                   And Your right hand shall hold me.

           11 If I say, "Surely the darkness shall fall[a] on me,"

                   Even the night shall be light about me;

           12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,

                   But the night shines as the day;  

                   The darkness and the light are both alike to You.

                    

           13 For You formed my inward parts;

                   You covered me in my mother's womb.

           14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;[b]

                   Marvelous are Your works,  

                   And that my soul knows very well.

           15 My frame was not hidden from You,

                   When I was made in secret,  

                   And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

           16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.

                   And in Your book they all were written,  

                   The days fashioned for me,  

                   When as yet there were none of them.  

                    

           17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!

                   How great is the sum of them!

           18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;

                   When I awake, I am still with You.  

                    

           19 Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God!

                   Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men.

           20 For they speak against You wickedly;

                   Your enemies take Your name in vain.[c]

           21 Do I not hate them, O LORD, who hate You?

                   And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?

           22 I hate them with perfect hatred;

                   I count them my enemies.  

                    

           23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;

                   Try me, and know my anxieties;

           24 And see if there is any wicked way in me,

                   And lead me in the way everlasting.

          A Plea for Deliverance and Forgiveness  

          A Psalm of David.

           1 To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.

           2 O my God, I trust in You;

                   Let me not be ashamed;

                   Let not my enemies triumph over me.

           3 Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed;

                   Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.

                    

           4 Show me Your ways, O LORD;

                   Teach me Your paths.

           5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me,

                   For You are the God of my salvation;

                   On You I wait all the day.

                    

           6 Remember, O LORD, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses,

                   For they are from of old.

           7 Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions;

                   According to Your mercy remember me,

                   For Your goodness' sake, O LORD.

                    

           8 Good and upright is the LORD;

                   Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.

           9 The humble He guides in justice,

                   And the humble He teaches His way.

           10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth,

                   To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.

           11 For Your name's sake, O LORD,

                   Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.

                    

           12 Who is the man that fears the LORD?

                   Him shall He[a] teach in the way He[b] chooses.

           13 He himself shall dwell in prosperity,

                   And his descendants shall inherit the earth.

           14 The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him,

                   And He will show them His covenant.

           15 My eyes are ever toward the LORD,

                   For He shall pluck my feet out of the net.

                    

           16 Turn Yourself to me, and have mercy on me,

                   For I am desolate and afflicted.

           17 The troubles of my heart have enlarged;

                   Bring me out of my distresses!

           18 Look on my affliction and my pain,

                   And forgive all my sins.

           19 Consider my enemies, for they are many;

                   And they hate me with cruel hatred.

           20 Keep my soul, and deliver me;

                   Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You.

           21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,

                   For I wait for You.

                    

           22 Redeem Israel, O God,

                   Out of all their troubles!

          A psalm of David.

          The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures,he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.

          He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
          Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

          You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
          You anoint my head with oil;my cup overflows.

          Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

        • Psalm 112

           1 Praise the Lord!

             How joyful are those who fear the Lord

                and delight in obeying his commands.

           2 Their children will be successful everywhere;

                an entire generation of godly people will be blessed.

           3 They themselves will be wealthy,

                and their good deeds will last forever.

           4 Light shines in the darkness for the godly.

                They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.

           5 Good comes to those who lend money generously

                and conduct their business fairly.

           6 Such people will not be overcome by evil.

                Those who are righteous will be long remembered.

           7 They do not fear bad news;

                they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.

           8 They are confident and fearless

                and can face their foes triumphantly.

           9 They share freely and give generously to those in need.

                Their good deeds will be remembered forever.

                They will have influence and honor.

           10 The wicked will see this and be infuriated.

                They will grind their teeth in anger;

                they will slink away, their hopes thwarted.

        • Ten years ago, when I was having trouble during my pregnancy, this is the Psalm that I held onto, until God proved to me how faithful He is!

          Psalm 139: 13-14
          “FOR YOU CREATED MY INMOST BEING; YOU KNIT ME TOGETHER IN MY MOTHER‘S WOMB.  I PRAISE YOU BECAUSE I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE; YOUR WORKS ARE WONDERFUL, I KNOW THAT FULL WELL.”

          Take your pick!  Just love them!!!  I had a pastor once who said she loved the Psalms because David was just as schizophrenic as the rest of us. estatic  He starts out by wanting God to kill his enemies, then he despaired of life, then praised God for saving him, then thanked God for blessing him.  Sounds so much like me, i took on the name...

          Psalm 46
          1 God is our refuge and strength,

                always ready to help in times of trouble.

           2 So we will not fear when earthquakes come

                and the mountains crumble into the sea.

           3 Let the oceans roar and foam.

                Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!

           4 A river brings joy to the city of our God,

                the sacred home of the Most High.

           5 God dwells in that city; it cannot be destroyed.

                From the very break of day, God will protect it.

           6 The nations are in chaos,

                and their kingdoms crumble!

             God's voice thunders,

                and the earth melts!

           7 The Lord of Heaven's Armies is here among us;

                the God of Israel is our fortress.

                              

           8 Come, see the glorious works of the Lord:

                See how he brings destruction upon the world.

           9 He causes wars to end throughout the earth.

                He breaks the bow and snaps the spear;

                he burns the shields with fire.

           10 "Be still, and know that I am God!

                I will be honored by every nation.

                I will be honored throughout the world."

           11 The Lord of Heaven's Armies is here among us;

                the God of Israel is our fortress.
