power-of-prayer(Psalms 38:1)  O LORD, do not rebuke me in Your wrath, Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure!

(Psalms 38:2)  For Your arrows pierce me deeply, And Your hand presses me down.

(Psalms 38:3)  There is no soundness in my flesh Because of Your anger, Nor any health in my bones Because of my sin.

(Psalms 38:4)  For my iniquities have gone over my head; Like a heavy burden they are too heavy for me.

(Psalms 38:5)  My wounds are foul and festering Because of my foolishness.

(Psalms 38:6)  I am troubled, I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.

(Psalms 38:7)  For my loins are full of inflammation, And there is no soundness in my flesh.

(Psalms 38:8)  I am feeble and severely broken; I groan because of the turmoil of my heart.

(Psalms 38:9)  Lord, all my desire is before You; And my sighing is not hidden from You.

(Psalms 38:10)  My heart pants, my strength fails me; As for the light of my eyes, it also has gone from me.

(Psalms 38:11)  My loved ones and my friends stand aloof from my plague, And my relatives stand afar off.

(Psalms 38:12)  Those also who seek my life lay snares for me; Those who seek my hurt speak of destruction, And plan deception all the day long.

(Psalms 38:13)  But I, like a deaf man, do not hear; And I am like a mute who does not open his mouth.

(Psalms 38:14)  Thus I am like a man who does not hear, And in whose mouth is no response.

(Psalms 38:15)  For in You, O LORD, I hope; You will hear, O Lord my God.

(Psalms 38:16)  For I said, “Hear me, lest they rejoice over me, Lest, when my foot slips, they exalt themselves against me.”

(Psalms 38:17)  For I am ready to fall, And my sorrow is continually before me.

(Psalms 38:18)  For I will declare my iniquity; I will be in anguish over my sin.

(Psalms 38:19)  But my enemies are vigorous, and they are strong; And those who hate me wrongfully have multiplied.

(Psalms 38:20)  Those also who render evil for good, They are my adversaries, because I follow what is good.

(Psalms 38:21)  Do not forsake me, O LORD; O my God, be not far from me!

(Psalms 38:22)  Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation!power-of-prayer
