Praying the Psalms: Fri, 06 Jul – Psalm 6 ~ Restore us!

Praying the Psalms

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!

Opening – (Northumbria Community)

One thing I have asked of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life; to behold the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.

Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ, King of endless glory.

Morning Reading: Psalm 6 (NLT)

O Lord, don’t rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your rage. Have compassion on me, Lord, for I am weak. Heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony. I am sick at heart. How long, O Lord, until you restore me?

Return, O Lord, and rescue me. Save me because of your unfailing love. For the dead do not remember you. Who can praise you from the grave?

I am worn out from sobbing. All night I flood my bed with weeping, drenching it with my tears. My vision is blurred by grief; my eyes are worn out because of all my enemies.

Go away, all you who do evil, for the Lord has heard my weeping. The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord will answer my prayer.

May all my enemies be disgraced and terrified. May they suddenly turn back in shame.

Morning Prayer:

Almighty God: Have mercy on us in this our time of trouble. We have sinned against you, and are undeserving of your restoration and loving-kindness. Our grief has been long and bitter; hear now the cries of our hearts –

+ For those in great danger – relieve our fears and anxieties…. Lord, restore us.
+ For those under your chastening hand – discipline us out of love…. Lord, restore us.
+ For those suffering physical and mental anguish – accept our repentance…. Lord, restore us.

Almighty God, unto whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid: cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

“Restore Me (Psalm 6)” – The Shiyr Poets

Lord don’t rebuke me | Or in your wrath turn away | Have mercy on me Lord
In your anger | Don’t chasten me without cause | Your favor is my need Lord

I am faint feeling weak | I need healing | I need your relief
My bones are in agony | My soul is in anguish inside me

How long O Lord | How long O Lord | Till you restore me

Turn Lord deliver me | Save me because of your unfailing love |
Death holds no mention of your name | Who praises you from the grave

Lord I am worn out | I cannot weep anymore | Have mercy on me Lord
This constant groaning | this flood of tears on my bed | Your favor is my need Lord

Away from me all evil men | My God has heard my pleading for help
The Lord God has heard my cry | The Lord God will answer all my prayers
May all my enemies turn back in shame | May all my enemies turn back in shame
When you restore me | When you restore me When you restore me

Blessing – (Northumbrian Community)

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!
