Hear, O Lord, and answer me,
for i am poor and needy.
Guard my life, for
i am devoted to You.
You are my God,
save Your servant
who trusts in You.
Have mercy on me, O Lord,
for i call to You all day long.
Bring joy to Your servant,
for to You, O Lord,
i lift up my soul.
You are forgiving and good,
O Lord, abounding in love
to all who call on You.
Hear my prayer, O Lord,
listen to my cry for mercy.
In the day of my trouble
i will call to You, for
You will answer me.

psalm 86:1-7

    Dave, This is just a wonderful masterpiece of heartfelt prayer to our Lord and God of all. I will show this to Carl as I do think sometimes God does not hear him, but he has said, he will never turn from Him. Carl recognizes that Christ has always been with him even though he has walked away at times. I pray that Carl will one day prosper first and foremost in spirit so that he may prosper in all other areas of his life. Thank you my friend for all your caring. God bless you!

  • my “caring” is weak at best and lost at worst but for whatever i can do you’re more than welcome. praying for y’all
