Read Psalm 13


Read Psalm 13

How much longer will you forget me, Lord? For ever?
How much longer will you hide yourself from me?
2     How long must I endure trouble?
How long will sorrow fill my heart day and night?
How long will my enemies triumph over me?
3     Look at me, O Lord my God, and answer me. Restore my strength; don’t let me die.
4     Don’t let my enemies say, “We have defeated him.”
Don’t let them gloat over my downfall.
5     I rely on your constant love;
I will be glad, because you will rescue me.
6     I will sing to you, O Lord,
because you have been good to me.

Think

The Psalmist feels as if God has abandoned him; he cries out to God.  Although he receives no answer - somehow; verses 5 and 6 indicate that he knows that God will answer his prayer.

Pray

"I rely on your constant love; I will be glad, because you will rescue me.  I will sing to you, O LORD, because you have been good to me."
