When you find yourself
facing the unknown,
your flesh screams for relief,
your mind races for answers,
and your heart begins to melt.

Believers know their first line of defense is prayer.
But when your world is turned upside down, you need help to focus your prayers.

Both the Scripture and songs are divided into sections:

Six cries of the heart commonly experienced by those facing the unknown.

Each section below includes:
a song playlist
additional encouragement
{The Scripture is included in the guide.}

1. PLEA(se)

One of the first responses is to cry out to God.

You lay your heart bare before the Lord in an honest, transparent plea that He would hear your cries and draw near.

There will come a time when you will press on and move forward.

Remember that exhaustion from the stress of your ordeal — as well as setbacks — are common.

Sometimes it sounds like a quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.”

One step at a time.

A note from the author:

This site and the companion mini-guide were born out of my own time in God’s waiting room.

After I had prayed for my loved one over and over, I knew I needed something more.

I’ve been teaching the Bible for decades. God’s Word is hidden in my heart, but I was amazed at how my scattered mind struggled to bring selected promises to the surface.

I hope this helps you frame the cries of your heart within the framework of the unchanging Word authored by the Creator who calls you child.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
