Pilgrim's Progress

1.       For praise; with melodies on the harp of eight strings. A hymn of David.
2.       O Lord, do not humble[16] me in your anger; and do not punish me in your wrath.
3.       Pity me, O Lord,[17] for I am weak; heal me, O Lord, for my bones are terrified.
4.       And my soul is greatly terrified; and you, O Lord, when will you give me relief?
5.       Turn, O Lord, save my soul, redeem me for the sake of your goodness.
6.       For there is no memory of you in death; in Sheol who will give you thanks?
7.       I am wearied with my groaning; I will speak[18] in my sorrow every night on my bed; I will drown my couch with my tears.
8.       My eye is dark from my trouble; it is worn out by all my oppressors.[19]
9.       Leave me, all doers of falsehood; for the Lord has heard[20] the sound of my weeping.
10.    My petition[21] has been heard in the Lord’s presence; the Lord will accept my prayer.
11.    All of my enemies will be ashamed and very afraid; they will turn and be ashamed in an instant.

I sat me down to write a simple story
which maybe in the end became a song
In trying to find the words which might begin it
I found these were the thoughts I brought along
At first I took my weight to be an anchor
and gathered up my fears to guide me round
but then I clearly saw my own delusion
and found my struggles further bogged me down
In starting out I thought to go exploring
and set my foot upon the nearest road
In vain I looked to find the promised turning
but only saw how far I was from home
In searching I forsook the paths of learning
and sought instead to find some pirate's gold
In fighting I did hurt those dearest to me
and still no hidden truths could I unfold
I sat me down to write a simple story
which maybe in the end became a song
The words have all been writ by one before me
We're taking turns in trying to pass them on
Oh, we're taking turns in trying to pass them on


Psalms and Jewish Prayer for Healing

When praying for an individual who is ill, it is customary to recite the following thirty-six chapters of Psalms: 20, 6, 9, 13, 16, 17, 18, 22, 23, 28, 30, 31, 32, 33, 37, 38, 39, 41, 49, 55, 56, 69, 86, 88, 89, 90, 91, 102, 103, 104, 107, 116, 118, 142, 143, and 148.

Therefore ...
confess your sins to each other 
and pray for each other 
so that you may be healed. 
The prayer of a righteous person
 is powerful and effective.

And the prayer offered in faith 
will make the sick person well;
the Lord will raise them up.
 If they have sinned, 
they will be forgiven.
James 5
