Psalm 44

24 Awake! Why do you sleep, O Lord? Rise up! Do not reject us forever!

25 Why do you hide your face; why forget our pain and misery?

26 We are bowed down to the ground; our bodies are pressed to the earth.

27 Rise up, help us! Redeem us as your love demands. (NAB)

The heat is intense, and the blowing wind makes it like a furnace.

Fires burn at will.

Where are You O Lord?

Wake us from our slumber that we might turn to You.

Bless our land with your heavenly rains.

That we might give You thanks and praise.
