A Cry For Help Psalms 88

Lord God, my saviour, I cry out all day,
and at night I come before you.
Hear my prayer;
listen to my cry for help!
So many troubles have fallen on me that I am close to death.
I am like all others who are about to die; all my strength is gone.
I am abandoned among the dead;
I am like the slain lying in their graves, those you have forgotten completely, who are beyond your help.
You have thrown me into the depths of the tomb, into the darkest and deepest pit.
Your anger lies heavy on me, and I am crushed beneath its waves.
