PSALM 130 (1-8): Out of the depths [of distress] I have cried to You, O Lord. Lord, hear my voice! Let Your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. If You, Lord, should keep an account of our sins and treat us accordingly, O Lord, who could stand [before you in judgment and claim innocence]? But there is forgiveness with You, that You may be feared and worshiped [with submissive wonder]. I wait [patiently] for the Lord, my soul [expectantly] waits, and in His word do I hope. My soul waits for the Lord…more than the watchmen for the morning…more than the watchmen for the morning. O Israel, hope in the Lord, for with the Lord there is lovingkindness and with Him is abundant redemption, and He will redeem Israel from all his sins.

PRAYER: In our world today, Lord, we are surrounded by confusion, distress, depression, lack, sorrow, and a ton of other confrontational issues. Even those of us who intentionally walk in your ways and understand that you are our help, our safety, and our protection against all things that the devil throws at us, sometimes get weary and feel the weight of the pain and sorrow of a confusing world situation.

Sometimes that weariness turns to worry, and we forget temporarily to turn to you for the ways out of the wilderness, so that we can once again see and feel your wonderful loving light upon us. Sometimes we allow anger to settle in, instead of spending time in prayer and seeking closer relationship with you. Sometimes we forget who is in control.

We ask you, now, Lord (and help us to do so, often), to forgive our sometimes wayward thoughts and rebellions. We thank you that your thoughts for US are love and forgiveness, at all times. Help us to walk INTO your loving arms when we feel scared, worried, let down, or troubled in any other way, so that we can bask in your love at ALL times, and settle into the constant, comforting knowledge that you are WITH us and FOR us–regardless of how we have felt or acted out of fear and confusion, at times.

We love you Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Thank you for watching over us ALWAYS, and for steering us INTO your arms of love, rather than away from them into worry and despair. Also, we want to thank you for sending your love and comfort not ONLY to those of us who already believe and know to walk into your arms, but even into the hearts of those who are still trying to ignore you and walk in ways of darkness while trying to avoid your loving arms. Thank you for your mercy and your grace toward us all. We look forward to seeing more and more people come to know the wonder and acceptance of your love and protection–even right here on Earth–even in the middle of this time of confusion.

Thank you VERY much, Lord. AMEN!
