Cry Aloud to the Lord!

This is a good Psalm for when we feel alone and/or in some kind of trouble. Here the Psalmist calls upon the LORD...who is there.


Psalm 142:1-7 (NIV)

1 I cry aloud to the LORD;
I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.

2 I pour out my complaint before him;
before him I tell my trouble.
3 When my spirit grows faint within me,
it is you who know my way.
In the path where I walk
men have hidden a snare for me.
4 Look to my right and see;
no one is concerned for me.
I have no refuge;
no one cares for my life.
5 I cry to you, O LORD;
I say, "You are my refuge,
my portion in the land of the living."
6 Listen to my cry,
for I am in desperate need;
rescue me from those who pursue me,
for they are too strong for me. 7 Set me free from my prison,
that I may praise your name.
Then the righteous will gather about me
because of your goodness to me.
