17 Listen, O Lord, to my plea for justice;
pay attention to my cry for help!
Listen to my honest prayer.
2 You will judge in my favour,
because you know what is right.
3 You know my heart.
You have come to me at night;
you have examined me completely
and found no evil desire in me.
4 I speak no evil as others do;
I have obeyed your command
and have not followed paths of violence.
5 I have always walked in your way
and have never strayed from it.
6 I pray to you, O God, because you answer me;
so turn to me and listen to my words.
7 Reveal your wonderful love and save me;
at your side I am safe from my enemies.
8 Protect me as you would your very eyes;
hide me in the shadow of your wings
9 from the attacks of the wicked. 
Verses 7 is a verse we often need to pray. Just as last week’s Psalm reminded us to be honest about our brokenness; this one calls us to remember the depth of God’s love.
Lord; reveal your wonderful love and save me. Protect me as you would your very eyes. Hide me in the shadow of your wings.
