When you are wrongly accused, pray this psalm to God, expressing honestly your deepest feelings.
Listen while I build my case, God,
the most honest prayer you'll ever hear.
Show the world I'm innocent --
in your heart you know I am.
Go ahead, examine me from the inside out,
surprise me in the middle of the night --
You'll find I'm just what I say I am.
My words don't run loose.

The RESILIENCE conference in 2021 was so uplifting and nourishing. It was wonderful to be with other Christians around the world at this retreat, who truly care about responding to trauma in a compassionate way by teaching spiritual practices to help with grounding and healing.”
Join us for the next RESILIENCE conference on September 29-30, 2023. Learn more at UpperRoom.org/resilience.
