Let My Prayer Arise : Praying and Singing Psalm 141:1-4 [Psalms in Christian Liturgy]



Psalm 141:1-4 (LXX 140:1-4)

1 Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.
2 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
3 Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.
4 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.
