-Praying Psalm 38

by Request ~ July 19th, 2015

A Psalm of David

38 O Lord, rebuke me not in your anger,
nor discipline me in your wrath!
2 For your arrows have sunk into me,
and your hand has come down on me.

3 There is no soundness in my flesh
because of your indignation;
there is no health in my bones
because of my sin.
4 For my iniquities have gone over my head;
like a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me.

5 My wounds stink and fester
because of my foolishness,
6 I am utterly bowed down and prostrate;
all the day I go about mourning.
7 For my sides are filled with burning,
and there is no soundness in my flesh.
8 I am feeble and crushed;
I groan because of the tumult of my heart.

9 O Lord, all my longing is before you;
my sighing is not hidden from you.
10 My heart throbs; my strength fails me,
and the light of my eyes—it also has gone from me.
11 My friends and companions stand aloof from my plague,
and my nearest kin stand far off.

12 Those who seek my life lay their snares;
those who seek my hurt speak of ruin
and meditate treachery all day long.

13 But I am like a deaf man; I do not hear,
like a mute man who does not open his mouth.
14 I have become like a man who does not hear,
and in whose mouth are no rebukes.

15 But for you, O Lord, do I wait;
it is you, O Lord my God, who will answer.
16 For I said, “Only let them not rejoice over me,
who boast against me when my foot slips!”

17 For I am ready to fall,
and my pain is ever before me.
18 I confess my iniquity;
I am sorry for my sin.
19 But my foes are vigorous, they are mighty,
and many are those who hate me wrongfully.
20 Those who render me evil for good
accuse me because I follow after good.

21 Do not forsake me, O Lord!
O my God, be not far from me!
22 Make haste to help me,
O Lord, my salvation!  (ESV)


Our Father,

We praise your name O Lord.  We  confess our iniquity and our sins before you after all you have even better knowledge of our failures then we do.  Our enemy comes to us claiming that we have no business asking for your help since we have failed you so many times. But you are always faithful to forgive us when we come before you in repentance.

Do not forsake us now O Lord in our sickness and poor health but rise up with our salvation and with healing in your wings as you always have in the past. We stumble about in weakness, bring strength to our legs and bones once more. Let us stand and worship you once more in the company of believers with joy. Take the sickness away and replace it with a strong testimony of your grace. Take our doubt away and give us hope once more in the land of the living.

We are confident that we will see you on the throne in your Kingdom because of our faith in your Son Jesus and because of his righteousness and not our own in spite of the doubts the enemy tries to bring before us. But let us feel your presence once more in this life. O my God, be not far from us in our times of difficulty and bad health.

Make haste O Lord to help us in the face of the enemy as a testimony against him. Let us rejoice and celebrate your goodness once more with our children and grandchildren.

O Lord, bring us salvation in this life along with the life to come. Bring your Kingdom down in our midst and let us rejoice in your presence and mercy once more.

In Jesus name, Amen.
