let me never be put to shame!
In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me;
incline your ear to me, and save me!"
Addendum: The picture is Charles Spurgeon, the Prince of Preachers. Spurgeon felt that perhaps the hardest part of preaching was choosing a text, something he worked on throughout the week. He began his actual sermon preparation at 6 PM on Saturday evening, staying at the task until he felt he had sufficiently prepared for Sunday morning. This method should only be used by the most gifted of preachers!
