DDCommunity: Psalm 142 Prayer Pattern for when I am overwhelmed

Psalm 142 provides a pattern for prayer for when I am overwhelmed. Use this Psalms Prayer Pattern to commit all your struggles to the One who knows the way you should turn. This Prayer Pattern is also a great guide when you are trying to forgive by resigning the God job.

Psalm 142 Prayer Pattern

I cry out to the LORD;
      I plead for the LORD’s mercy.
I pour out my complaints before him
      and tell him all my troubles.
When I am overwhelmed,
      you alone know the way I should turn.
Wherever I go,
      my enemies have set traps for me.
I look for someone to come and help me,
      but no one gives me a passing thought!
No one will help me;
      no one cares a bit what happens to me.
Then I pray to you, O LORD.
      I say, “You are my place of refuge.
      You are all I really want in life.
Hear my cry,
      for I am very low.
Rescue me from my persecutors,
      for they are too strong for me.
Bring me out of prison
      so I can thank you.
The godly will crowd around me,
      for you are good to me.       
—Psalm 142 NLT
