I cry out to the LORD. I place my pleas before him; and he listens. I tell him my troubles. At one time, my steps faltered and my decisions led me to a pit. There was no one to notice, no refuge and no care for my soul; until I cried out to the LORD and he pulled me from the pit. He pulled me out of my self-imposed prison and into the marvelous light of his love and redemption. Righteousness will dwell all around me. Lord, you deal bountifully with me. I lift my voice to pour out my praise in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“With my voice I cry out to the Lord; with my voice I plead for mercy to the Lord.” (Psalm 142:1 ESV)
