For Crying Out Loud

Are you a silent pray-er, or do you pray out loud?

For the most part I am a silent pray-er.  When I am alone, I say my prayers in my mind.  This is true most of the time, but not always.  Sometimes I feel the need to pray out loud.

This morning I am meditating on a verse from Psalm 88:

"But I cry to You for help, O Lord; in the morning my prayer comes before You."

Today I invite you to say your prayers out loud.

You might try using one of the following passages from the Psalms to start: 

I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me.  When I was in distress, I sought the Lord . . . .  (Psalm 77) 

O Lord my God, I called to You for help and You healed me (Psalm 30:2).

To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul; in You I trust, O my God (Psalm 25:1-2a).

Why, O Lord, do You stand far off?  Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble? (Psalm 10:1)

Hear my prayer, O Lord; let my cry for help come to You.  Do not hide Your face from me when I am in distress.  Turn Your ear to me; when I call, answer me quickly . . . .  (Psalm 102)

Out of the depths I cry to You, O Lord; O Lord, hear my voice.  Let Your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy . . . .  I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His Word I put my hope . . . . (Psalm 130)
