How Long Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? – Psalm 13:1-2
Dear heavenly Father,
I can feel all alone when I'm suffering from health problems or some situation outside of my control. I pray and pray and never hear a sound from you. I know you love me along with everyone else but I still often feel it would be more loving for you to audibly comfort and guide me. It's comforting to meet David in this psalm and see he had the same frustration while suffering. You promise to speak to my soul through your word. Help me find your voice there and to trust your unfailing love no matter how long I must wait for answers or rescue. I trust you as my Savior and I will wait patiently for your help and rescue.

God is worthy of our love and trust even when we cannot make any sense out of our lives under his heaven.
