Psalms 69 SINKING INTO OBLIVION V.1-4

DROWNING V.1-2

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

EMOTIONAL BREAKDOWN

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.

EMINENT BOG

We sink in deep mire where there is no standing:

Save us from sinking hopelessly in the mud beneath our feet.

ENGULFING BONDAGE

We’re into deep waters, where the floods overflow us.

We’re certainly in over our head

DESPAIRING V.3

A FRUSTRATED PLEA

EMOTIONALLY DRAINED

I am weary of my crying:

We will call out to You until we are worn out

ESOPHAGEAL DEHYDRATION

Our throat is dried:

until our tongue cracks and our throat parches

We’ll keep praying

EXHAUSTED DISCRIMINATION

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.

DESPISED V.4

UNREASONABLE HATRED

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

UNJUSTIFIED HOSTILITY

they that would destroy me,

their attacks seem to keep coming at us

being my enemies wrongfully are mighty

UNIMAGINABLE HELPFULNESS

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
