Hope & Healing

Lord, my God, I call out by day; at night I cry aloud in your presence.  Let my prayer come before you; incline your ear to my cry; For my soul is filled with troubles; my life draws near to Sheol.                                                                                                                                                      - Psalm 88:1-4
