But you, O LORD, do not be far off! O you my help, come quickly to my aid! (20) Deliver my soul from the sword, my precious life from the power of the dog! (21) Save me from the mouth of the lion! You have rescued me from the horns of the wild oxen!
You do come quickly to my aid. You are always there but I am not always listening. So often I am so busy beating off the pack of wild dogs that I do not see You there, begging for the opportunity to pick me up and lift me out of harm's way. Continue, Lord, to break that pride and sense of self-sufficiency.
