10. Friday Afternoon Prayer | Lamentations 3:49-58

Slow down. Step into the Spirit’s Rhythm.

Morning has passed. The day is winding down. God meets us in our joy and our exhaustion. In our hope and our anxiety. He calls us to finish well and supplies us everything we need by grace. Join your brothers and sisters in Christ in prayer.

Lamentations 3:49-58

My eyes will flow unceasingly,

    without relief,

until the Lord looks down

    from heaven and sees.

What I see brings grief to my soul

    because of all the women of my city.

Those who were my enemies without cause

    hunted me like a bird.

They tried to end my life in a pit

    and threw stones at me;

the waters closed over my head,

    and I thought I was about to perish.

I called on your name, Lord,

    from the depths of the pit.

You heard my plea: “Do not close your ears

    to my cry for relief.”

You came near when I called you,

    and you said, “Do not fear.”

You, Lord, took up my case;

    you redeemed my life.
