O Lord, please do anything but leave me here.
Let me run again, or help me fly, or somehow make it right.
But Lord, please don’t leave me here.
–Rebecca Dennison, Crippled Soul
O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer;
give ear, O God of Jacob!
Behold our shield, O God;
look on the face of your anointed
For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does he withhold
from those who walk uprightly.
O Lord of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!
— Psalm 84:8-12
You have kept count of my tossings;
put my tears in your bottle.
Are they not in your book?
