Psalm 28 I reach Out in Prayer

I reach out to you in prayer.
  Do you hear me?
I try to pray right.
  I go to church
I avoid evil deeds and evildoers
  (as best I can.)
I try to be honest with myself
  and gentle to those around me.
And—since you don’t talk very often, I try
  to see you in your works and in your people.
When flocks of birds pass overhead
  or the sun shines on the mountain
When I notice my burdens lightening
   or see a rainbow after a storm—
I say, “God has heard my prayer.”
Thank you. You are my strength and my shield.
  I trust you. I have been helped
And my heart dances for joy.
