[Jeremiah’s Prayer, Chapter 17, NIRV]
LORD, You are Israel’s only hope. Everyone who has deserted you is going to be ashamed. There is no life a part from YOU. LORD heal me and I will be healed; Save me and I will be saved. You LORD are the only one I praise. They keep teasing me about my prophecies of judgment not materalizing but how can I long for Your judgment to come, it is not going to be a pleasant thing. You know my heart, You are aware of every word I speak, you know that I do not want to see Jerusalem fall. It strikes terror in my heart to think about the things that are coming. LORD vindicate me before my enemies: let me not be put to shame and deliver me from fear.
