“LORD” – Yahweh, master
“My Rock” – my solid ground, my firm foundation, my strength
“Do not be deaf to me” – hear me, listen to me
“Like those going down to the pit” – if I don’t hear your voice it would be like I am dead, or better to die
Have you ever been in prayer when you felt similar to this psalmist? Would you rather hear the voice of the LORD than live without hearing it?
Yahweh, I long to hear you speak, like this psalmist did. Speak to me Father, do not be silent. I long to hear your still small voice. May I listen diligently and respond. Amen
