• Psalm 107:19 “Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.”
  • Psalm 34:17 “The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.”
  • Psalm 107:6 “Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.”

Our prayers do not have to be perfectly worded, or eloquent. They do need to be honest. Pour out your heart to God. If you are hurting or afraid you can cry out to Him, and He is there. Crying is nothing to be ashamed of, even though many times I have been embarrassed for crying during a service or while praying, but I know in my heart that crying is okay. I know that while I was growing up I was taught not to cry, if I got spanked I was not to cry because if I did the spanking would continue until I stopped. This is my past but it still effects my present at times. Knowing that it is okay to cry has helped, but I still hate it when I cry.

So I have learned to cry out to God, and pray to Him when I feel broken. Crying out without shame, baring my soul to Him and letting Him turn my sorrow into joy.

Here a couple of songs that speak of crying out to God.

So cry to the Father , He will hold you and comfort you and gather your tears.

Please share any prayer request you may have in the comments so we can pray together and for each other.

God bless and keep you safe.
