Next, open your Bible to the book of Psalms and read a few of the ones that pertain to sorrow. Read them aloud. Read the verses that speak to your heart over and over. Mark the verbs that you can relate to. Some that deal with tears and crying out are Psalm 18, 61, and 40.
God, meet me. Meet me in my tears. Bring others to walk with me. Sustain me. Lift me up. I want to believe that you are close to the brokenhearted (Ps. 34). Help me in this time of need when it’s hard to see straight and even more difficult to have hope. Amen.
