Draw Aside

 A prayer when he was confined in a cave (TPT)

 

Psalm 142 

God, I’m crying out to you!
    I lift up my voice boldly to beg for your mercy.


I spill out my heart to you and tell you all my troubles.


For when I was desperate, overwhelmed, and about to give up,
    you were the only one there to help.
    You gave me a way of escape from the hidden traps of my enemies.


I look to my left and right to see if there is anyone who will help,
    but there’s no one who takes notice of me.
    I have no hope of escape, and no one cares whether I live or die.


So I cried out to you, Lord, my only hiding place.
    You’re all I have, my only hope in this life, my last chance for help.


Please listen to my heart’s cry,
    for I am low and in desperate need of you!
    Rescue me from all those who persecute me,  for I am no match for them.


Bring me out of this dungeon so I can declare your praise!
    And all the righteous will celebrate all the wonderful things you’ve done for me!
