Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD. Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications! Psalm 130 V 1-2
Do you feel that you are in the depths right now? How about those around you?
The world is certainly in the depths – rampant wildfires, blistering heat in areas known to be cooler, earthquakes, flooding and hurricanes. And, we are still battling a pandemic.
The Psalmist certainly knows about the depths. David often wrote Psalms during his darkest days. He would write out the words of his heart and you can almost see his tears. David and the other Psalmists wrote these honest thoughts as a prayer and a healing balm. Even in his deepest pits, David retained hope in the Lord.
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning (v 5-6).
Perhaps we should turn to the Psalms – read them, pray through them, lift them up as prayers to the Lord. Perhaps we can turn to the Psalms as our prayers for this world and each other.
