TODAY’S WORD – a prayer, a cry of emotional anguish…
Save me, O God!
The water is up to my neck;
I am sinking in deep mud,
and there is no solid ground;
I am out in deep water,
and the waves are about to drown me.
I am worn out from calling for help,
and my throat is aching.
I have strained my eyes,
looking for Your help.
Insults have broken my heart,
and I am in despair.
I had hoped for sympathy, but there was none;
for comfort, but I found none.
…I am in pain and despair;
lift me up, O God, and save me!
– Psalm 69:1-3,20,29 (GNT)
Come quickly to help me, O Lord my Saviour,
come quickly to guide me through my pain and despair.
