Psalm for Prayer - November 8, 2015

Psalm 123 - A Song of Ascents.

 [1] To you I lift up my eyes,
  O you who are enthroned in the heavens!
[2] Behold, as the eyes of servants
  look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maidservant
  to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the LORD our God,
  till he has mercy upon us.

 [3] Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us,
  for we have had more than enough of contempt.
[4] Our soul has had more than enough
  of the scorn of those who are at ease,
  of the contempt of the proud.

(Psalm 123 ESV)
