Lord Hear My Cry

I feel like a candle spluttering to stay alight
Lord I desperately want to shine like a beacon of hope
Lord I need You to light my heart
Lord I need You to reignite my spirit
Lord I need You to clarify my mind
Lord I need You
Lord I need You desperately

Who else can I possibly turn to?
No human heart can understand
My own heart cannot contain this anguish

The grief and the sorrow gnaw at my bones
Lord I’m so desperate
I need to hear Your voice
I need to know You’re here

My heart beats faintly in hope, but the pain suffocates each beat

Lord who else can I trust but You?!

You’ve promised to be my tower of strength

You’ve promised to be my safe refuge

You’ve promised me…….

You’ve promised…….

Your Word declares that You’re faithful, steadfast and true

So come now and quickly rescue me!

Lord I fear I will lay wasted on the battleground

Lord I fear that I’ve cried out in vain

Lord I fear

I fear

I fear

But You’ve promised that Your perfect love will drive out ALL fear

But You’ve promised me that if I resist the devil he will flee

What more can I say?

What more can I do?

What more is there to face?

Lord You’ve promised to cast out ALL loneliness so why do I feel so alone?

Lord You’ve promised me…….

You’ve promised…….

You’ve promised me so many things and I dare to believe that they are true

I refuse to accept that Your promises are false!

Lord You’ve said You would shelter me with Your wings

Lord my faith is weak but You’ve promised that even the smallest amount of faith can move mountains

So Lord move my mountain and cast it into the sea!

Lord restore to me Your joy

Lord restore to me Your favour

Lord restore to me health

Lord restore to me my precious inheritance

Lord will You hear my cries for mercy?

Lord will You run right now to catch me?

Lord I’m so broken, can You mend me?

Lord I’m so empty, can You fill me?

Lord this wasteland is simply too harsh

Lord this winter season is simply too barren

Lord why do I see springs of promises to have them snatched from my grasp?

Lord why do I feel like this?

Is there something I have not repented of? Then I am sorry

Lord is there some part of my heart that I have held back from You? Here it is take it all – it’s weak and failing me!

Lord I offer up to You now my broken heart, please come and mend it
I offer to You my failing spirit, please come and revive it
I offer my racing mind, please come still it and fill it with Your thoughts!

I cannot see what else there is to offer You!

But yet my heart beats only for You

But yet my lungs thirst only for Your life-giving breath

But yet my bones stir only to receive Your marrow

But yet my eyes lift to the heavens

But yet my hand still moves to pour it out to You

But yet my voice cries for mercy from the only One who can possibly help!

Human compassion dries up, but You promise to never run dry

Human understanding ceases, but You promise me that tomorrow the sun will rise and I will see Your mercy and loving-kindness afresh

Human love is flawed, but You promise to be a father of endless compassion, unfailing mercy and unconditional love!

You promise me Your ways are just and true!

So soak me now in Your mercy and grace

Pour afresh over me Your unfailing love deep into my heart

Breathe into my lungs Your breath of life

Give me a new song

Give me new words of love

Give me new words of life and truth

May You fill my body with life

May You transform me

Come wipe my tears and kiss my forehead

Come take my hand and lift me up

Come swiftly my Mighty Conqueror

Psalm‬ ‭23:6‬: So why would I fear the future? For I’m being pursued only by Your goodness, beauty, mercy and unfailing love!I shall dwell forever, throughout all my days, in the house of God and in the glorious presence of the LORD. (AMP, MSG‬‬ & TPT paraphrased)
