Lamentation

Oh Lord my God, hear my cry unto Thee.

Darkness, despair, turmoil and uncertainty surrounds me. Fear, doubt and failings are seeking to control me.

Oh Lord, help me! Save me, heal me! Strengthen me! That I my serve Thy children in this dark, wicked place and time!

My health is affected, my emotional state, my spirituality, all in a grind of survival.

I have lost all desire for the things of this world, and the evil one knows this and is seeking to weaken my faith and my hope in all that Thou has promised me.

I seek for relief, HOWEVER, only when Thou has determined it is sufficient to thy purposes with me.

As terribly weak as I am, I seek to be thy servant, to help in thy work in this trying day. But I am so weak, so tired, and so slothful; however I know with Thee my God, all things are possible!

Free me from this darkness that I may rise up and fulfill the full measure of my creation, to accomplish what I was sent to this Telestial world to do, and that I may serve thee oh Lord, all the days that remain of my life in this fallen place!

I’m so tired of Babylon! I wish to leave its employ and seek service and refuge with Thee and for Thee! To have the blessing to associate with Thee and the saints of the Church of the First Born as Thou has promised me. To help in Thy work and in Thy glory in bringing to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. I seek a place in the business of Thy Holy Family.

And the Lord said unto me..

“And again: Hearken, O ye house of Israel, all ye that are broken off and are driven out because of the wickedness of the pastors of my people;

Then I said, I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for naught and in vain; surely my judgment is with the Lord, and my work with my God.

Thus saith the Lord: In an acceptable time have I heard thee, O isles of the sea, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee; and I will preserve thee, and give thee my servant for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;

That thou mayest say to the prisoners: Go forth; to them that sit in darkness: Show yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.

They shall not hunger nor thirst, neither shall the heat nor the sun smite them; for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.

And I will make all my mountains a way, and my highways shall be exalted.

Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; for the feet of those who are in the east shall be established; and break forth into singing, O mountains; for they shall be smitten no more; for the Lord hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.

But, behold, Zion hath said: The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me—but he will show that he hath not.” (I Ne 21)

Oh Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, and may Thy kingdom come, and Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in Heaven.

Forgive me oh Father for my endless weaknesses and failings. Apply the sacred atoning sacrifice of Thy Son, the Holy one of Israel, my Savior and Lord, that I may be free of the blood and sins of this wicked generation. In His Holy name, Jesus Christ. Amen!
