Psalm 42

1 Chapter: Psalm 42

1 Verse:
Verse 6. O my God, my soul is in despair within me; therefore I remember You from the land of the Jordan and the peaks of Hermon, from Mount Mizar.

1 Prayer: Father, is memory a cure for despair? Doesn't it only make things worse to recall how much closer I felt to You then? These places take me back; they stand out in my mind as high points in our journey together -- when You carried me across the river at flood stage out of long desert wanderings into the land of rest and plenty that You'd promised. Or when You led me to a height of strength, a fortress of defense, a refuge against all enemies and tore it away from my foes and handed it over to me. Those are the times I long for, the places I'm so glad we have been together. Won't remembering those moments of joy only magnify my current despair by comparison? Yet, Lord, I remember.
