|“St Francis Rejecting the World |
and Embracing Christ”.
1 With all my voice I have cried to the Lord with all my voice I have entreated Him;
I pour out my prayers in His sight and I give voice to my troubles before Him..
2 When my spirit faints within me, you have known my path.
The psalmist is not being silent, nor stoic. But is making sure that by raising prayers and supplications, God will hear them.
We may fall into the habit of being meek and mild in raising our prayers to God. Have a look at some of the prophets of old. There are not many who remained silent. Rather they called, argued and debated with God. Can you do this?
