Psalm 142 (Trust in the Lord)

1 I cry aloud to the Lord;
I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy.

2 I pour out before him my complaint;
before him I tell my trouble

3 When my spirit grows faint within me,
it is you who watch over my way.
In the path where I walk
people have hidden a snare for me.

4 Look and see, there is no one at my right hand;
no one is concerned for me.
I have no refuge;
no one cares for my life.

5 I cry to you, Lord;
I say, "You are my refuge,
my portion in the land of the living."

6 Listen to my cry,
for I am in desperate need;
rescue me from those who pursue me,
for they are too strong for me.

7 Set me free from my prison,
that I may praise your name.
Then the righteous will gather about me
because of your goodness to me.

How many of us feel this way and how many of us put our trust in the LORD?  I confess I love the LORD but my trust is lacking.  I pray that he will forgive me and my hope is in his saving grace.
