God, hear my prayer.
Don’t ignore my cry for help.
Please listen and answer me.
Let me speak to you and tell you what upsets me.
My enemies shout at me and threaten me.
In their anger they attack me.
They bring troubles crashing down on me.
My heart is pounding inside me.
I am afraid to die.
I am trembling with fear.
I am terrified!
Oh, I wish I had wings like a dove.
I would fly away and find a place to rest.
I would go far into the desert and stay there.
I would run away.
I would escape from this storm of trouble…
I will call to God for help,
and the LORD will save me.
I speak to God morning, noon, and night.
I tell him what upsets me, and he listens to me!
I have fought in many battles,
but he has always rescued me and brought me back safely.
God, who has always ruled as king,
will hear me and punish my enemies…
Give your worries to the LORD,
and he will care for you.
He will never let those who are good be defeated…
As for me, I will put my trust in you. (From Psalm 55)
I have nothing to add to what the Word of God says itself. Find your comfort in the truth. He hears you. He is listening to you. He cares for you. He will never let you be defeated. Put your trust in that God today and just keep breathing…
