Psalm 130 (NRSV)
Waiting for Divine Redemption
A Song of Ascents.
Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD. Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!

If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with you, so that you may be revered.

I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.

O Israel, hope in the LORD! For with the LORD there is steadfast love, and with him is great power to redeem. It is he who will redeem Israel from all its iniquities.


  • Take time and write down the things that you want to cry out to God for.
  • Ask God to hear your voice. Read this Psalm out loud again.
  • Wait in silence for a minute.
  • Read the Psalm out loud again.
