Daily Prayer: July 3, 2017

Reading: Lamentations 3; Psalm 29

My soul is void of peace;
I have forgotten what joy is.

All my strength has failed me;
My hope has disappeared.

I thought it was surely over;
But I found myself still there.

My bones they ache within me;
And my soul is in despair.

But I remember how you love me;
That you are always there.

Your faithfulness is lasting,
And with me ’til the end.

Each day dawns with new hope;
Your deliverance is near.

In you will I find satisfaction;
In your name alone will I rest.

Your name, it is unchanging;
My hope is not in vain.

The walls close in around me;
But my trust they cannot take.
