Expanding our spiritual vocabulary- Yawp

The word is Yawp. Pronounced \yawp, yahp\. This word is a noun OR verb, depending on the usage. It is defined as

To utter a loud, harsh cry (v), or a noisy foolish utterance (n)

Used in a sentence: (verb) As I began to see the result of the Enemy’s assault on my family, I would fall to my knees and yawp to God for forgiveness and mercy in our lives. (noun) As I waited for my answer to the calamity that had befallen me and my loved ones, God revealed our shortcomings, and how our yawp before was selfish and petty, as we never considered those truly in need.
(Matthew ch.6:vs.5-8)
