Despair: Day 5

Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need.
Psalm 142:6 NIV


Desperation is the active internalization of despair. This extreme expression of despair can result in dire consequences. If you are living in emotional darkness, overwhelmed by negativity and immobilized by grief, ask for help. Find a confidential, non-judgmental counselor, therapist, or minister who will listen thoughtfully and understand your grief. Let another guide you away from despair into the light.


God, listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need. Calm the despair of my heart. I seek your wisdom and counsel. Amen.


The desperation caused by my grief will not last forever.
