Read Psalm 123
Lord, I look up to you,
up to heaven, where you rule.
2 As a servant depends on his master,
as a maid depends on her mistress,
so we will keep looking to you, O Lord our God,
until you have mercy on us.
3 Be merciful to us, Lord, be merciful;
we have been treated with so much contempt.
4 We have been mocked too long by the rich
and scorned by proud oppressors.
"Lord, I look up to you, up to heaven, where you rule."
People often ask me why we should pray when God already knows what we need.
Praying is a way of saying to God and to ourselves that we depend on God. A way of reminding ourselves that we need God's help.
Pray the Psalm.
