  1. Cry Aloud to the Lord!

    This is a good Psalm for when we feel alone and/or in some kind of trouble. Here the Psalmist calls upon the LORD...who is there.

    Psalm 142:1-7 (NIV)

    1 I cry aloud to the LORD;
    I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.

    2 I pour out my complaint before him;
    before him I tell my trouble.
    3 When my spirit grows faint within me,
    it is you who know my way.
    In the path where I walk
    men have hidden a snare for me.
    4 Look to my right and see;
    no one is concerned for me.
    I have no refuge;
    no one cares for my life.
    5 I cry to you, O LORD;
    I say, "You are my refuge,
    my portion in the land of the living."
    6 Listen to my cry,
    for I am in desperate need;
    rescue me from those who pursue me,
    for they are too strong for me. 7 Set me free from my prison,
    that I may praise your name.
    Then the righteous will gather about me
    because of your goodness to me.
