Read Psalm 6 today.
How does the psalmist describe his physical condition?
What emotions is the psalmist feeling?
What is the psalmist asking of God?
What are the expectations the psalmist has of his prayer?
God hears us and we can pray with expectation.
As you reflect on this, pray in these ways and any other way the Holy Spirit leads.
For those who are suffering from physical pain and need hope.
For those who are suffering from mental anguish to find peace.
For those who are suffering greatly yet can’t find the words to pray.
For those who may be experiencing great sorrow and loss to find comfort in God’s presence.
For those who feel humiliation and yearn for forgiveness and restoration.
For those who are feeling alone in their pain to feel the fellowship, love, and compassion of the Lord.
For those who are suffering to claim victory by knowing their loving Lord hears and accepts their prayers.
A Cry for Healing
For the Pure and Shining One
A song for stringed instruments, for the new day by King David
1 Yahweh, don’t condemn me.
Don’t punish me in your fiery anger.
2 Please deal gently with me, Yahweh;
show me mercy, for I’m sick and frail and weak.
Heal me, Yahweh, for I’m falling apart.
3 My soul is so troubled; but you,
Return to Me
4 Yahweh, turn to me and rescue my life
because I know your faithful love will never fail me.
5 In the darkness of death who remembers your name in worship?
How could I bring you praise if I’m buried in a tomb?
6 I’m worn out with my weeping and groaning.
Night after night I soak my pillow with tears,
and flood my bed with weeping.
7 My eyes of faith won’t focus anymore, for sorrow fills my heart.
There are so many enemies who come against me!
He Heard My Cry
8 Turn from me, all you troublemakers!
For Yahweh has turned to hear the sound of my weeping.
9 Yes! Yahweh my healer has heard all my pleading
and has taken hold of my prayers and answered them all.
10Now it’s my enemies who have been shamed.
Terror-stricken, they will turn back again,
knowing the bitterness of sudden disgrace!
