Read Psalm 123


Read Psalm 123

      LORD, I look up to you,
     up to heaven, where you rule.
     2As 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.

     3Be merciful to us, LORD, be merciful;
     we have been treated with so much contempt.
     4We have been mocked too long by the rich
     and scorned by proud oppressors.


This simple Psalm gives voice to those who feel oppressed by the injustices of our world.


Pray the Psalm - Ask God to give you a sense of his response to those who pray it - especially those who are oppressed and mocked.
