A Prayer for Healing – August 24, 2019

Categories: Daily Devotions,Devotions,WELS Daily Devotions

O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath. Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony. My soul is in anguish. How long, O LORD, how long? Turn, O LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love. . . . 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.
Psalm 6:1-4,8,9

A Prayer for Healing


Daily Devotion – August 24, 2019

Devotion based on Psalm 6:1-4,8,9


See series: Devotions

King David wrote this psalm probably at the time in his life when things were going badly. He was hurting physically and was greatly disturbed over the turmoil that was besetting him. He prayed fervently for the Lord to deliver him from the agony of pain and the anguish of his soul.

Can you relate to David’s condition today? Are you struggling with a physical ailment that drains your strength? When you woke up this morning, was your outlook for the day clouded by yesterday’s adversity? Are you slogging through the day silently sighing, “How long, O LORD, how long?”

In his great needs for his body and soul, David petitioned the Lord for help. He counted on the Lord’s unfailing love to look on him in mercy and lift him up from the pit of his problems. And his prayer was answered. David exclaimed, “The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer.”

Trusting in the love and power of the Lord, you too can take your cares to him. He promises to hear your prayer. And his answer will always be according to his unfailing love for you—a love he demonstrated by sending Jesus to rescue you from the pain of sin’s punishment and the agony of eternal death.

So, you can be sure that he hears your prayer. And, sooner or later, he will deliver you!

Prayer:
O Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath. Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am faint; heal me, for my bones are in agony. My soul is in anguish. How long, O Lord, how long? O Lord, turn and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love. Amen.
