Praying Through: Psalm 27:7-10

The Psalm

Psalm 27 (CSB)

7 LORD, hear my voice when I call; be gracious to me and answer me.

8 My heart says this about you: “Seek his face.” LORD, I will seek your face.

9 Do not hide your face from me; do not turn your servant away in anger. You have been my helper; do not leave me or abandon me, God of my salvation.

10 Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD cares for me.

The Prayer

O Lord

Every single adult who were suppose to love me and care for me

  • did not.

My father raped me. My mother abandoned me. My grandmother threw me to the wolves. My step-mother neglected and beat me.

But you, O Lord, have never stopped loving me,

  • even when everybody else has.

You have called me into this world,

  • only to glorify you.

You have declared that I am in the world and not of the world.

  • so let the world become dark and grotesque in my eyes
  • so that my eyes would stare deeply in your glorious light.

My God, save me.

  • take me home
  • to be with you forever.
