Prayer When in Distress
3 A psalm of David when he fled from his son Absalom
“O Lord, so many are against me. So many seek to harm me. I have so many enemies. 2 So many say that God will never help me. 3 But Lord, you are my shield, my glory, and my only hope. You alone can lift my head, now bowed in shame. 4 I cried out to the Lord, and he heard me from his Temple in Jerusalem. 5 Then I lay down and slept in peace and woke up safely, for the Lord was watching over me. 6 And now, although ten thousand enemies surround me on every side, I am not afraid. 7 I will cry to him, ‘Arise, O Lord! Save me, O my God!’ And he will slap them in the face, insulting them and breaking off their teeth. 8 For salvation comes from God. What joys he gives to all his people.” ~ Psalm 3:1-8
~ Pray Silently ~
Oh Lord, it is to you that I pray. It is to you I hang all of my hopes and fears upon, for it is only you who truly knows my heart. Lord, I call out to you as my redeemer; as my savior; for you have never left me when everyone else has abandoned me. Oh Lord, I know you see my struggles, my hardships, and all my difficulties I have endured. I know you have been there with me because I can feel you every moment of every day. Though my head is bowed, and I am weak from the fight, I have your assurance I will prevail. Though there are many who would bring me low, I have your promise that in that hour you will lift me high upon your shoulders. You will keep watch over me when I sleep and vanquish all who would come after me in the darkest of night. Oh my Lord, My God, with these truths I have no reason to fear or be in any distress, for you are with me and I am with you. For you give me your divine peace and holy security and it is through this I know I am truly saved. In Jesus’s name I pray, Amen ~ Brian Stark (2014, Jan. 16)
