Hear my cry, O God;
God, my eyes are red from tears, my throat sore from sobbing, and my heart aches from heaviness. Are You there? Can’t You hear me crying out to You—I’m not doing so good.

Listen to my prayer.

Are you listening God? Please say something—anything. Show me You are near. I feel so alone.

From the ends of the earth I call to You,

I can’t handle much more. This is it. I’m at my wit’s end. If you don’t show up…

I call as my heart grows faint;
Hopelessness is pending and depression is calling for me. Where are You?

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
I know You’re there. You said You would never leave. Pick me up. Lead me to safe ground. Take me to a place I can stand firm. Lead me to a rock that is higher than the floods. Guide me to You, Jesus—the Rock on which all hope resides—Y o u   a r e   a l l   I ’ v e   g o t …

I choose to believe. I choose to trust. I choose to stand on the Rock.

How about you? What is your uncensored prayer?

Here or somewhere…be real.
Share your journey.

Reflective Scripture


 “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield and the horn of my salvation.
He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior”
