Today we continue an ambitious project! For the next nine months, you and I will get the opportunity to read through, and more importantly, pray through the Psalms together. See this post for more info.
The audio file below is the entire episode for today. The text below is today’s prayer. I’m reading the Contemporary English Version of the Text, copyright 1995, by the American Bible Society.
God. Abba. Father.
Some days we wonder “Where are you, God?” We are weary from the trials, from the persecution, from the illnesses, from the loss. We are confused as we seek your face and yet, through our worn out eyes, we can’t seem to find you. Our enemies are winning. This is all wrong! Why is this happening?
Please, LORD God, hear our prayers. Answer us when we cry. We long for the day when our eyes will sparkle again as they did when we first met you. Take a good look at us, God. Please don’t let our foes laugh when we fall down, when we fail.
No, we will stand and shout, “We trust you, God! We love you, God!” You ways are perfect and true. Your love is unfailing. We sing praises to your name. Our heart rejoices for you will, no, you have, answered our prayers. You have been so good to us! We are humbled at your care for us. Thank you.
And we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

One thought on “Psalm 13”
Great post, again. Yes, we ARE weary and confused.
FYI – the prayer printed for Psalm 13 is the same as Psalm 12 and does not match what you read.
