The Lord has heard my cry for mercy

Reading:  Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath. Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint; heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony. My soul is in deep anguish. How long, Lord, how long?

Turn, Lord, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love. Among the dead no-one proclaims your name. Who praises you from his grave?

I am worn out from my groaning. All night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears. My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes.

Away from me, all you who do evil, for the Lord has heard my weeping. The Lord has heard my cry for mercy; the Lord accepts my prayer. All my enemies will be overwhelmed with shame and anguish; they will turn back and suddenly be put to shame.
Psalm 6:1-10‬ ‭(NIV)

Prayer: Father, when we are in distress emotionally or physically, may we turn to you for relief.  If we have sinned, may we seek your forgiveness and be restored to you.  Amen
