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.

...devoid of our regular routine and filled instead with uncertainty and a hum of anxiety, my husband and I have found the practice of joining The Upper Room each day at 11am (CST) via Facebook to pray, listen, and learn in community, including my sister in Houston. This is a much-needed healing balm." Join us on Facebook each day at 11AM Central.
