Going through a tough time today? Something tougher than anything you’ve experienced before? Something that has you struggling to trust God and clawing feverishly for survival?
Today, during my time of “Coffee with the Lord” I believe I read (and reflected upon) a passage of Scripture that I believe is just for you! A passage you can turn into your personal prayer! A Divine prescription for the season you may be facing! In fact, the introductory comments to this passage in my Bible put it this way… “A prayer of one afflicted, when they are faint and pouring out their complaint before the Lord.”
Here is a portion of it I’ve selected for you… From Psalm 102:
“Hear my prayer, O Lord; let my cry come to You! Do not hide Your face from me in the day of my distress! Incline Your ear to me; answer me speedily in the day when I call!
“The Lord regards the prayer of the destitute and does not despise their prayer!
“Let this be recorded for a generation to come, so that a people yet to be created my praise the Lord: “He looked down from His holy height; from heaven the Lord looked at the earth to hear the groans of the prisoners – to set free those who were doomed to die, that they may declare the name of the Lord and His praise, when people gather together to worship the Lord!
“Of old You laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands! They will perish but You will remain! They will all wear out like a garment, you will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but You are the same – Your years have no end!” (Selected from Psalm 102)
I don’t know who this may be especially for today… but I paused and prayed for you! May Psalm 102 be just what you need today!
