This week’s Psalm is a cry for help. These psalms give expression to the deepest moments of human pain. But they do so in a way which claims the promise of God’s presence in the midst of our suffering and also the promise that the God-who-is-with-us will preserve us from evil and bring us to a new day.

TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? (Psalm 13:1)
- We come to God in times of suffering, seeking relief, seeking light, seeking answers. And God hears it all, without judging or abandoning us.
- Tell of a time you had to trust someone, even though it was hard. How did it turn out?
- What makes trusting difficult?
- What makes trusting rewarding?
- Wonder: Does God trust me? Why or why not?
- Keep a photo journal this week of all the places you see God. Post the photos to your social media, #GodSightings.
PRAY: Holy Lord, all things come from you, and all things might be found in you. Open our eyes, O God, that we might know your presence and trust once more in your steadfast love. Amen.
BLESS: May God show God’s trustworthiness to you. Amen.
