1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord; 2 O Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. 3 If you, O Lord, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand? 4 But with you there is forgiveness; therefore you are feared. 5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. 6 My sould waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the mourning, more than watchmen wait for the morning. 7 O Israel, put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption. 8 He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.
Prayer: Holy God, God of our hope, may Your Spirit quiet our souls and give us peace while we wait on You. Be our refuge and give us strength for today. May the joy of the Lord be our strength. May Your Spirit control our minds and keep our hearts, O Shepherd of our souls. May Your unfailing love show in the midst and confront our oppressors. May we hear Your voice say, “I Am Here”.
in Christ Jesus, amen and amen
