Today's reading is a favorite prayer in trouble for me. We'll sing Psalm 130 during worship tomorrow, so reading it today makes sense. Often we reach out to God when we're at the end of our rope. We pray with neighbors in Boston who have lost friends or relatives this week. We pray with neighbors here in Rochester who worry about losing their homes. We pray when we feel hopeless or powerless in our own lives. No matter where we are, God hears us.
