Psalm 70 – Pentecost 23A

Psalms in the form of words and art, reborn in the specific contexts of our world, privileging the voices of historically marginalized communities and those acting in solidarity with them.
Living Psalm 70 for Pentecost 23 A
God, I’m over it. Come save me now.
Everyone who rallies to hurt others, scatter them.
Bring them down, God. They should be humbled.
The sneering haters need to be put in their place.
Do something now, God.
But let those who seek you and your Justice, praise your name.
Let those who’ve known salvation shout.
I need you. I’m tired. I’m worn out.
Please hurry up.
Come on God, I’m counting on your day of Justice.
Living Psalm 70 for Pentecost 23 A, was written by the Rev. Bec Cranford.
