WE OFFER UP A FLAIR PRAYER
Save us, O God;
We feel terrible when we embrace how others mocked You
We feel under rejection and scorn too
“He saved others, Himself He can’t save.”
We know You feel what we’re experiencing in our feelings
for the waters are come in unto our soul.
O God, their are rising floodwaters.
We’re living in turbulent times.
There’s division, there’s deception, there’s destruction, there’s disease
We can’t watch the news without feeling despair.
We sink in deep mire where there is no standing:
Save us from sinking hopelessly in the mud beneath our feet.
We’re into deep waters, where the floods overflow us.
We’re certainly in over our head
A FRUSTRATED PLEA
I am weary of my crying:
We will call out to You until we are worn out
Our throat is dried:
until our tongue cracks and our throat parches
We’ll keep praying
Our eyes fail while I wait for our God.
We will keep looking to You until our eyes fail.
What else can we do, Lord?
We have no other hope besides You.
They that hate us with no cause
are more than the hairs of our head
Our enemies are so numerous;
and their mockery and ridicule is incessant
they that would destroy me,
their attacks seem to keep coming at us
being my enemies wrongfully are mighty
then I restored that which I took not away
We try to pray for those who oppose our every breath
We want to be faithful to You
We long to bring glory to Your name
We want to be filled with Your positive energy
