“But I, O LORD, cry to you; in the morning my prayer comes before you” (Psalm 88:13, ESV). Psalm 88 is not among the cheerful psalms; and so it is a good psalm for those whose days are not cheerful. Heman the Ezrahite knew darkness and the feeling of being rejected by God. And, even though his prayer ends in the darkness, there is hope in the place of waiting. He takes his misery to the Lord; so should all who suffer.
God is with us, even when we must walk grim and shadowy roads. If you ever feel tempted to despair, cry out to God and do not lose hope. The Lord is gracious to the humble and compassionate to the hurting. Take heart, and look to God, who cares for you even in the deepest struggles and sufferings.
