THE PRAYER OF THE PERSECUTED

To crush underfoot all prisoners in the land,
to deny a man his rights before the Most High,
to deprive a man of justice –

Would not the Lord see such things?

Those who were my enemies without cause
hunted me like a bird.
They tried to end my life in a pit
and threw stones at me;
The waters closed over my head,
and I thought I was about to be cut off.

I called on your name, O Lord,
from the depth of the pit.
You heard my plea: Do not close your ears to my cry for relief.

You came near when I called you, and you said, “Do not fear.”

O Lord, you took up my case;
You redeemed my life.
You have seen, O Lord, the wrong done to me.

Uphold my cause!

(Lamentations 3:34-36; 52-59)
