Prayer from Psalm 130: Mercy Me

This entry is part 137 of 158 in the series Prayers from the Psalms

 

 

Lord, I’m standing at the bottom of the sin-hole I’ve dug.

The walls of shame stretch upward forever.

The darkness of my deeds envelopes me.

And this isn’t my first visit here.

You know how many other times I’ve succeeded in doing what’s wrong and failed in doing what’s right.

I’ve been in this pit more times than I can count.

But what’s more unbelievable than my mess is your mercy.

You are a God of unfailing love.

Again and again you reach down and lift me out.

Even now I can see the light of your love shining in this horrible hole.

My sin is deep.

Your grace is deeper.

Even here, way down here, your grace reaches me.
