Psalms 69:13-15 -- On Prayers In Times of Need

"But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O Lord, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me."
Psalms 69:13-15

I like this prayer.  None of us want to face things that overwhelm us, especially alone.  We look to God to help us when no one else can.  And really, that is part of what prayer is for... we have access to God so that we can have his help facing the trials of life.  Today, let's remember to call upon our Father whenever we need him... and let's work on realizing that we need him every moment of every day, not just in emergencies. :)
