Daily Scripture:

‘I cry aloud to the Lord; to the Lord I make my supplication.

I pour out my complaint before him and tell him of my trouble.’ (Psalm 142:1-2)

Daily Reflection:

Once more the Psalmist is completely honest with God when life seemed to have got on top of him. Words written some three thousand years ago – by David; the man to become King David. Words and feelings that still resonate with us…..because we are all human. If you’ve ever felt that no-one cared what happened to you? That’s how David felt; and he cried out to the Lord. God cares for you – deeply. Tell Him of the things that trouble you; ask for Him to help. Then accept the help that is offered.

Prayer: God of compassion, you regard the forsaken and give hope to the crushed in spirit; hear those who cry to you in distress and bring your ransomed people to sing your glorious praise, now and for ever. Amen.

Revd David
