Wake up, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Get up! Do not reject us forever. Why do you look the other way? Why do you ignore our suffering and oppression? We collapse in the dust, lying face down in the dirt.
…Why have you tossed me aside? Why must I wander around in darkness…
A couple of weeks ago, the windshield washer on my car stop working. Not a big deal but an inconvenience. With the unpredictable weather in Kansas, it could get annoying. I came out with an idea to use a water bottle and poke holes on the cap and use that. I hate driving with a dusty windshield. The winds could […]
Day and night, I have only tears for food.. O God my rock, I cry, why have you forsaken me? Why must I wander in darkness…
For troubles surround me – too many to count! They pile up so high I can’t see my way out. They are more numerous than the hairs on my head. I have lost all my courage.
I am bent over and racked with pain. My days are filled with grief. A raging fever burns within me, and my health is broken. I am exhausted and completely crushed. My groans come from an anguished heart.

My God, my God! Why have you forsaken me? Why do you remain so distant? Why do you ignore my cries for help? Every day I call to you, my God, but you do not answer. Every night you hear my voice, but I find no relief. But I am a worm and not a man I am scorned and despised by all! Everyone who sees me mocks me. They sneer and shake their heads… Do not stay so far from me, for trouble is near, and no one else can help me. My life is poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart is like wax, melting within me. My strength has dried up like sunbaked clay. My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth. You have laid me in the dust and left me for dead. I can count every bone in my body. My enemies stare at me and gloat. O Lord, do not stay away…
