The writer of Psalm 130 knows the depths of despair and from that state he cries out to the Lord, because with the Lord there is mercy and ample redemption. And so it is for us: if we are feel hopeless or miserable because of some situation that’s tumbling over our heads, crashing like waves all over us, then all we need to do is turn to the one who can rescue any of us from the multitude of their sins. Praise God for such abundant mercy and care
- Pray for all those who find themselves overwhelmed by circumstances – whether of their own making of because of the folly of others. Pray that God will lift them out of their distress and strengthen their heart.
- Give thanks for the work and witness of the Church of the Province of Central Africa, especially in Zambia.
