“I Sink in Deep Mire”
Read Psalm 69:1-3
Focused prayer is accurate and clear about two things: that man’s need is desperate, and that the remedy lies in God. Man’s need for help and God’s will to save are joined.
PRAYER: Keep me always conscious, Father, of my need and your salvation, of the perils of sin and the mercies of deliverance, of my empty hands and your bountiful grace, through Jesus Christ. Amen.
