Where Is God? Prayer

Based on Psalm 22

You have deserted me God.
I am overcome with fear and you are gone.

You’ve always been there for me.
When I placed my trust in you,
You rescued me again and again.

But now I feel worthless.
I am trampled upon and hopeless.
They laugh at me for believing in you.
“Where is God now?” they say.

I need you now more that ever.
You have always been with me.
Where have you gone my God?
Come back!

I am broken and weak.
My pain will never end.
I am in agony.
I am completely alone.

I will not give up on you.
Hear me God! I am here.
And I still have my memories.
I recall all of the times you rescued me.

So I will be patient and endure.
I believe you are coming to my rescue again.
You are Lord of Creation
And you can overcome the emptiness inside of me.
I will praise your holy name
And all will hear me.

Amen.
