Psalm 10

Why do you stand afar off, O Lord? Why do you hide in times of trouble?  (Psalm 10:1)

"Never forget the sweet presence of God, as do the majority of people. Talk to God as often as you can....Don't be afraid that you will offend God if you sometimes complain and say: Why do you stand afar off, O Lord? Why do you hide in times of trouble? Lord, it is you who must save me. I am ready to suffer, if that is your good pleasure, but you, for your part, must help me."
--St. Alphonsus de Liguori, A Way of Conversing Continually with God, 1753.
