Psalm 55 - Fear and Trust

Where are you Lord?
Please answer Lord
I'm scared!

My heart breaks
My fear overwhelms
Rescue me!

Halt the wicked
Stop oppressors
End it!

You've left me Lord
Abandoned me 
Stop hiding!

I know you're there
You hear my voice
Save me!

I trust you Lord
I'm ready Lord

This idea of shortening the psalm came to me in prayer today.  

It was amazing to read the psalm differently, really analysing it to distill down the key meaning that was speaking to me.  I think I might do this again.

This is a prayerful exercise, not a theological one; please don't take this as a new form of the psalm.
