A Prayer of Faith in Time of Distress

~ Psalm 6 ~
O LORD, do not rebuke me in Your anger, Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure. Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am weak; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled. My soul also is greatly tousled; But You, O LORD – how long? Return, O LORD, deliver me! Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake! For in death there is no remembrance of You; In the grave who will give You thanks? I am weary with my groaning; All night I make my bed swim; I drench my couch with my tears. My eye wastes away because of grief; It grows old because of all my enemies. Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity; For the LORD has heard the voice of my weeping. The LORD has heard my supplication; The LORD will receive my prayer. Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled; Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.

I don’t know why I am typing this blog right now. In less than 3 hours, I should be sitting in my class and take a quiz. But before that happens, I am suppose to turn in a 1,200 word memo on Apple Inc in 2010.

But, my stomach hurts…

“Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am weak”
“Do not be silent to me”
“Plead my cause, O LORD”
“Hear my prayer, O God”
“I am restless in my complaint, and moan noisily”

God, I am approaching you with my thinking and feeling. Please restore my soul, guide me in the path of righteousness and walk me through the shadow of death.
