The Prayer of Expectation Through Forgiveness

Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses. Consider my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins. (Psalm 25:16-18)

To bring troubles to God is not to give way to despair, it is to exercise faith and hope. It shows not lack of assurance but expectation of great changes.
From “Psalm 25: David Seeks God’s Wise Guidance” in “The Lord Saves” by Eric Lane
