Psalm 95Psalm 22Psalm 141Psalm 143:1-11(12)
Jeremiah 29:1, 4-13
Romans 11:13-24John 11:1-27 or John 12:1-10

Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. Quicken me, O Lord, for thy name’s sake: for thy righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble. Psalm 143:10-11

This song reminds us that in times of darkness, anguish, desolation and heartache, we can turn to God for help. When we don’t know where to turn, when all around us seems bleak or harmful, when hope seems near gone, remember to reach out to God. He is with us. God created us and our beautiful world. We can pray to Him. He will guide us. Our faith in our loving God can lead us out of despair and into the light. We are not alone.
