15 # Short Commentary and Lesson from Psalm 56.8
In the times of our greatest distress we can trust in this promise: God hears our prayers (Isiah 38.5). While we weep with frustration or agony, God captures our tears as they fall. He carefully collects our sorrows and holds them close.
With his great patience, God has noticed the times we have strayed from his path and have stumbled on the rocks. And yet, no matter how weak or pitiful our words may seem, God does not forget the cries of those in need. Remember the words of the psalmist – You protected me from death and kept me from stumbling (v. 13).
