Jeremiah's Prayer

Although our sins testify against us,
O Lord, do something for the sake of your name.
For our backsliding is great;
we have sinned against you.
O Hope of Israel,
its Savior in times of distress,
why are you like a stranger in the land
like a traveler who stays only a night?
Why are you like a man taken by surprise,
like a warrior powerless to save?
You are among us, O Lord,
and we bear your name;
do not forsake us!

(Jeremiah 14: 7-9)
