Unfortunately, many people feel that way today. They have lost their job, defaulted on the mortgage, run out of unemployment benefits. What to do now?
Prayer changes things. Sometimes it just changes us, but that is better than nothing. When we cry out to God in our misery, circumstances are not necessarily better by the time we finish praying. We don't magically have a new job, the mortgage lender doesn't call and announce a refinancing opportunity, money doesn't fall to the floor in front of us. But, even so, we feel better.
God has heard us. God has listened. God has identified with us and brought us some measure of comfort. How he does that I don't know, but he has saved me more than once. When we cry out, "No one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life," he responds, "I am concerned for you. I am your refuge; I care for your life." He sets us free from our prison of despair (verse 7) and lifts up our head and our spirits.
If you are in this state today, cry out to God. He will not fail you.
