Psalm 143...

I've been reading some of the psalms this week, and I came across this one that's been on my mind most of the week. I can really empathize with David, because I feel the exact same way as him right now. Many of these verses resonate with me... my soul being afflicted and persecuted, my life being crushed to the ground, being left to dwell in darkness, my Spirit being overwhelmed and my heart distressed.

I feel truly broken... damaged beyond repair. The flesh side of me just gives up on people, yet I know this is a spiritual battle we're dealing with and not against flesh and blood.

Would appreciate some prayers. I'm losing faith, and it's truly a miracle that I even read scripture this week and that I'm even posting on this site.



Psalm 143

Hear my prayer, O Lord,
Give ear to my supplications!
In Your faithfulness answer me,
And in Your righteousness.
Do not enter into judgment with Your servant,
For in Your sight no one living is righteous.

For the enemy has persecuted my soul;
He has crushed my life to the ground;
He has made me dwell in darkness,
Like those who have long been dead.
Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me;
My heart within me is distressed.

I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all Your works;
I muse on the work of Your hands.
I spread out my hands to You;
My soul longs for You like a thirsty land. Selah

Answer me speedily, O Lord;
My spirit fails!
Do not hide Your face from me,
Lest I be like those who go down into the pit.
Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning,
For in You do I trust;
Cause me to know the way in which I should walk,
For I lift up my soul to You.

Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies;
In You I take shelter.
Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Your Spirit is good.
Lead me in the land of uprightness.

Revive me, O Lord, for Your name’s sake!
For Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.
In Your mercy cut off my enemies,
And destroy all those who afflict my soul;
For I am Your servant.
