Psalm 142:1-3

I cry out to the Lord; I plead for the Lord’s mercy. I pour out my complaints before him and tell him all my troubles. When I am overwhelmed you alone know the way I should turn.

Insight

Have you ever felt that no one cared what happened to you? Well, most have, and David certainly did. But, he knew where to turn in such times. Crying out to God in prayer, telling him what is on our hearts and in our minds, can pull us out of the tail spin. Don’t be ashamed to call out to God for help, and don’t hesitate to ask for his mercy. Jesus knew we would have days like this, that is why he came and lived on this earth before he died on the cross. He is well acquainted with our weaknesses. Maybe it it is true that no one really understands - but Jesus does, and he cares.

Prayer

Jesus, thank you for knowing and understanding what we are going through. We find comfort in knowing that you know. Today, we cry out to you… we need your mercy… come Lord Jesus in your strength and power. Amen.
