Bring Me Word


“O LORD, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy;

in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief.

Do not bring your servant into judgment,

for no one living is righteous before you.


The enemy pursues me, he crushes me to the ground;

he makes me dwell in the darkness like those long dead.

So my spirit grows faint within me; my heart within me is dismayed.


I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all

your works and consider what your hands have done.

I spread out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.


Answer me quickly, O LORD; my spirit fails.

Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit.

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.

Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

Rescue me from my enemies, O LORD, for I hide myself in you.

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God;

may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.


For your name’s sake, O LORD, preserve my life;

in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble.

In your unfailing love, silence my enemies;

destroy all my foes, for I am your servant.” ‭‭


Psalm ‭143:1-12‬ ‭NIV‬‬


Have you ever cried out to the Lord in despair? Not understanding why you're there, but seeking His direction and wisdom through it. You know He works all things out for the good of those who love Him. You know His ways are not your ways and His thoughts are not your thoughts. He sees from beginning to end, gives beauty for ashes, your story for His story and He makes all things new. It's not an easy place to be, but worth the journey. For the one who is leading is faithful and true. How we need to hide His Word in our hearts and stand on His Truth. It's what sustains us through the uncertainty and strengthens us for the journey. 


If you're battling something today, pray..."O LORD, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief. Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift my soul. Rescue me from my enemies, O LORD, for I hide myself in you. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground." Psalm 143:1, 8-10 NIV God is faithful and will show you the way. His Word speaks to us in our time of need. It's the promise we can hold onto as a rope pulling us up from the depth of our despair onto level ground. 


At the time of my own crying out to the Lord, a good friend sent me this song that I want to share with you. It was the Lord assuring me of His promise spoken to my heart. His Word I must stand on and keep believing. Enjoy as the Lord speaks to your own heart.


By your stripes I am healed

With one touch I am made whole

 You have spoken

And I know that it is so

In the storm You are peace

And Your love won't let me go

You have spoken 

And I know that it is so
