You Who Hear the Cry of the Distressed, Hear Us

A Prayer Based on Psalm 102

Our God and Heavenly Father, you who hear the cry of the distressed, hear us. Listen to our groanings—our pleas for relief from the gnawing pain of our anxieties. Turn your face toward us and answer us, so that we might praise your glorious Name when we gather with your people to worship you, through your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
