“Give ear, O God, to my prayer and do not ignore my plea for help. Listen to me and answer me. I am restless in my complaint and moan” (Ps.55:1-3). 

I cry out to You, Lord, to have mercy on me, as the Enemy forces keep coming against me. There is so much pressure on me, Lord;  “For they thrust trouble on me, and in anger bear a grudge against me) (Ps.55:4).

I feel as though “My soul is in the midst of lions,“whose teeth are spears and arrows, whose tongue is a sharp sword” (Ps.57:5,6), and some of these people are supposed to be my friends!  My very best friend(s) have turned against me (Ps.55:14), spreading lies, making false accusations. “They spread a net for my steps,They have dug a pit before me” (Ps.57:7); “my soul is bowed down.”

I wish I could escape! I would like to just run away from it all: “Oh that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and find rest. I would hide in the wilderness. I would hurry to my shelter from the rushing wind of the storm” (Ps.55:7-9). But I know I must surrender it all to You, I must call on You to save me, and You will hear me and rescue me from my enemies; You will “redeem my soul in shalom from the battle against me. For many are striving with me. You, Lord, will hear and humble them” (Ps.55:17-20). I will “Cast my burdens on You, Father, and You will sustain me” (Ps.55:23), for You “will never let the righteous be shaken.”

I cry out to You, Father, for only You can “accomplishes success for me. Send from heaven and save me. Rebuke the ones trampling on me, Lord. Send You mercy and truth” (Ps.57:3-5). “Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, for in You my soul takes refuge. In the shadow of Your wings I take refuge, until destruction passes by” (Ps.57:7).

“My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast” (Ps.57:8). I am trusting in You. I thank You, Heavenly Father, that I know You are taking care of me/my situation. Forgive me for whining, complaining, and doubting, because I know I can cast my cares on You, and You will hear me, and answer me. Thank-You, Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus/Yeshua, Holy Spirit. I am so grateful for my relationship with You.

In Jesus/Yeshua’s Name I pray. Amen.
