Psalms 102:1-3

A prayer of an afflicted person who has grown weak and pours out a lament before the LORD.

1 [a]Hear my prayer, LORD; let my cry for help come to you.
2 Do not hide your face from me when I am in distress. Turn your ear to me; when I call, answer me quickly.
3 For my days vanish like smoke; my bones burn like glowing embers.
