Praying Through: Psalm 32:3b

The Psalm

Psalm 32:3 (CSB) When I kept silent, my bones became brittle from my groaning all day long.

The Prayer

My God

While I tried to ignore

  • and even
  • excuse the pain caused me.
  • My body never forgets.

While I will make excuses

  • and blameshift
  • my sins against others
  • My soul remembers.

Your forgiveness

  • does not erase my wrongdoings.
  • But your Son's blood
  • covers my trespasses.

Help me to cry out to you,

  • for you are my Lord and my God
  • you are my Savior and Messiah
  • you are my Friend and my Brother
  • you are the only one who cared for me.
  • you are the only one who healed me.
  • you are the only one who saved me.

Be exalted, O Lord. Be lifted up higher and higher.
