Save me, O God!
For the waters have come up to my neck.
Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.
Thank God for the honesty of the psalmist. He prays in a time of crisis. We, being flesh and bone creatures, are very much scared of crisis. Quite simply, we don’t want our mothers to die, our friends to have cancer, our cars to crash or our country to be attacked. But in the midst of all these (very legitimate) fears, we often miss the value of a good, old-fashioned crisis. Bear with me. The psalmist cries to God “from the depths.”
