Psalm 61:1,2 [NLT] O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! 2 From the ends of the earth, I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed.
The Psalmist wrote it, spoke it, screamed it – as a wish, as a request, as a dream, as a hope, as a cry for help.
We read it, we repeat it, we recall it, we respond to it as a promise.
What the psalmist cried, we claim.
