Psalm 116


  1. I love you O Lord because you heard my voice;
    when I made my supplication.
  2. because you turned your ear to me;
    when I called upon your name.
  3. The cords of death entangled me,
    and the grip of Sheol laid hold on me;
    distress and anguish descended upon me.
  4. Then I called upon the name of the Lord;
    'Deliver me O Lord I beseech you.'
  5. Gracious is the Lord and righteous:
    truly our God is a God of compassion.
  6. The Lord preserves the simple-hearted:
    when I was brought low the Lord saved me.
  7. Be at rest once more O my soul
    for the Lord has treated you kindly.
  8. The Lord has saved me from death;
    and kept my eyes from tears
    and my feet from stumbling.
  9. so that I may walk in the presence of the Lord:
    in the land of the living.


  1. I kept my faith, even when I said,
    'I am in sore distress':
    in my haste I said, 'No one can be trusted.'
  2. How can I repay you O Lord:
    for all the good things you have done to me?
  3. I will take up the cup of salvation:
    and call on the name of the Lord.
  4. I will pay my vows to the Lord:
    in the presence of all God's people.
  5. Grievous in the sight of the Lord:
    is the death of a faithful servant.
  6. Lord I am your servant,
    the child of your maidservant:
    you have freed me from my bonds.
  7. I will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving:
    and call on the name of the Lord.
  8. I will pay my vows to the Lord:
    in the presence of all God's people.
  9. in the courts of the Lord's house:
    in your midst O Jerusalem.
    O praise the Lord.


Thank Him for 3 things that happened today (Good or Not!)


Lay us down to sleep, O LORD our God, in peace,
raise us erect, our King, to life;
and spread over us the shelter of Your peace.
Set us aright with good counsel from before Your Presence,
and save us for Your Name’s sake.
Shield us, remove from us foe, plague, sword, famine, and woe;
and remove spiritual impediment from before us
and behind us
and in the shadow of Your wings shelter us
For You are God who protects and rescues us;
the gracious and compassionate King.
Safeguard our going and coming
for life and for peace from now to eternity.
Blessed are You, O LORD,
Who protects His people forever.
