Scripture

Psalm 130

From a sea of troubles
I call out to you, Lord.
Won’t you please listen
as I beg for mercy?
If you kept record of our sins,
no one could last long.
But you forgive us,
and so we will worship you.
With all my heart,
I am waiting, Lord, for you!
I trust your promises.
I wait for you more eagerly
than a soldier on guard duty
waits for the dawn.
Yes, I wait more eagerly
than a soldier on guard duty
waits for the dawn.
Israel, trust the Lord!
He is always merciful,
and he has the power
to save you.
Israel, the Lord will save you
from all of your sins.

Reflection prompts

  • When you think of the word free, what comes to mind?
  • What things in this world prevent you from being free—spiritually, mentally and emotionally?

    Prayer

    Holy God, I am waiting for the sun to rise. I am waiting for the day with no more
    pain. I am waiting for peace and joy like a river. So as I wait, give me the will to
    move my feet. I will watch for morning. I will watch for morning. Amen. —
    Prayer by Rev. Sarah Are | A Sanctified Art LLC | sanctifiedart.org
