Be Honest with God that You are Hurting – Psalm 13

Be Honest with God that You are Hurting  Psalm 13

Psalm 13 American Standard Version (ASV) Public Domain

Prayer for help in affliction

13 How long, O Jehovah? wilt thou forget me for ever?
How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
Consider and answer me, O Jehovah my God:
Lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him;
Lest mine adversaries rejoice when I am moved.
But I have trusted in thy lovingkindness;
My heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
I will sing unto Jehovah,
Because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
