Thank you for the time with my husband already so much today, and thank you for healing my heart and mind and spirit in so many ways. Please help my husband get his new phone to work, and to gain access to his old phone numbers and contacts. Please cause his bosses to pay him what is owed, and help us get our bills and other responsibilities taken care of and off our shoulders. Lord, I thank you for the little idea you gave me this morning, although it is still developing. I give it to you, put it into your capable hands, and I ask you to grow it and show me what to do next. Amen!
Psalm 30 ERV
A song of David for the dedication of the Temple. LORD, you lifted me out of my troubles. You did not give my enemies a reason to laugh, so I will praise you.
LORD my God, I prayed to you, and you healed me.
LORD, you lifted me out of the grave. I was falling into the place of death, but you saved my life.
Praise the LORD, you who are loyal to him! Praise his holy name!
His anger lasts for a little while, but then his kindness brings life. The night may be filled with tears, but in the morning we can sing for joy!
When I was safe and secure, I thought nothing could hurt me.
Yes, LORD, while you were kind to me, I felt that nothing could defeat me. But when you turned away from me, I was filled with fear.
So, LORD, I turned and prayed to you. I asked you, Lord, to show me mercy.
I said, “What good is it if I die and go down to the grave? The dead just lie in the dirt. They cannot praise you. They cannot tell anyone how faithful you are.
LORD, hear my prayer, and be kind to me. LORD, help me!”
You have changed my sorrow into dancing. You have taken away my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.
You wanted me to praise you and not be silent. LORD my God, I will praise you forever!
Lord, please heal me of this sickness. I feel like I need to go lay down now. Thank you for caring for me!
