LORD< hear the cries of my heart.
For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draws near to the grave. (Psalm 88:3)
Jesus, once I was young and now I am old. I trust you to carry me to victory.
I am counted with those who go down to the pit; I am like a man who has no strength, (Psalm 88:4)
Holy Spirit, give me this day's strength -- strength to endure.
Adrift among the dead, like the slain who lie in the grave, whom you remember no more, and who are cut off from your hand. (Psalm 88:5)
Father, I live in the hope of the resurrection.
"I know that my redeemer lives, and he shall stand at last on the earth; and after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not as a stranger. How my heart yearns within me!" (Job 19:25-27)
