out or the depths

Good morning friends,
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.

God bless,

Psalm 130
1Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord. 2Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications! 3If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand? 4But there is forgiveness with you, so that you may be revered.

5I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; 6my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.

7O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is great power to redeem. 8It is he who will redeem Israel from all its iniquities.
