By making time to talk to God, you should know that what you say is being listened to. Your voice matters in heaven. God listens. When you are feeling alone there are often places we need to go to find uplifting words. Often when we are facing an abusive situation or what feels like an insurmountable obstacle we become overwhelmed and desperate.
One solution I have found is to turn to the Psalms for uplifting songs and prayers. Psalms 142 is a great prayer when you feel overwhelmed and desperate. When you feel cornered by your enemies, God can keep you safe.
I cry aloud to the Lord; I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy.
I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble.
When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who know my way.
In the path where I walk men have hidden a snare for me.
Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me.
I have no refuge; no one cares for my life.
I cry to you, O Lord; I say, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.”
Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me.
Set me free from my prison, that I may praise your name.
Then the righteous will gather about me because of your goodness to me.
Psalms 142 from NIV version
