Psalm 102:1-8

1 O LORD, hear my prayer, and let my cry for help come to you.
2 Do not hide your face from me when I am in trouble. Turn your ear toward me. Answer me quickly when I call.
3 My days disappear like smoke. My bones burn like hot coals.
4 My heart is beaten down and withered like grass because I have forgotten about eating.
5 I am nothing but skin and bones because of my loud groans.
6 I am like a desert owl, like an owl living in the ruins.
7 I lie awake. I am like a lonely bird on a rooftop.
8 All day long my enemies insult me. Those who ridicule me use my name as a curse.
