The plowers plowed upon my back;
They made their furrows long.
— Psalm 129:3

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord;
O Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
to my cry for mercy.
— Psalm 130:1-2

The beginning of Psalm 130 follows from the previous psalm. Whenever we experience the Lord’s plowing work through our environment, we become a person of prayer.

We are not this way by nature. We prefer to be wild and unrestricted and usually don’t feel the need to pray. But when we go through a trial, or when something drastic happens, then we become a prayerful person. We are driven to the Lord. We call on the Lord “out of the depths.” Because of our affliction we pray, “O Lord, hear my voice; let Your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.”
