Lenten Challenge #10
Your Challenge for today is to read and ruminate on Psalm 130. Psalm 130 is the scripture passage for tomorrow’s worship service. It is a psalm of lament. What is the lament of the psalmist here? What are they asking for? This is poetry so find a quiet place and take your time living with these words.
Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord
Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!
If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with you, so that you may be revered.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;
my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning,
more than those who watch for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the Lord!
For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is great power to redeem.
It is he who will redeem Israel from all its iniquities.
