1 Lord, you are the God who saves me;
day and night I cry out to you.
2 May my prayer come before you;
turn your ear to my cry.
3 I am overwhelmed with troubles
and my life draws near to death.
4 I am counted among those who go down to the pit;
I am like one without strength.
There may be a time when you despair of life itself. Things could be going from bad to worse. You need to tell God about it. You may not get an answer right away. Do not think you always have to be cheerful and positive. Grief and depression take time to heal. But, remember that no matter how you feel, take your problems to God and express your anguish to Him.
