Prayer for Recovery from Grave Illness

To the leader: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

1Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger,

or discipline me in your wrath.

2Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing;

Lord, heal me, for my bones are shaking with terror.

3My soul also is struck with terror,

while you, O Lord—how long?

4Turn, O Lord, save my life;

deliver me for the sake of your steadfast love.

5For in death there is no remembrance of you;

in Sheol who can give you praise?

6I am weary with my moaning;

every night I flood my bed with tears;

I drench my couch with my weeping.

7My eyes waste away because of grief;

they grow weak because of all my foes.

8Depart from me, all you workers of evil,

for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping.

9The Lord has heard my supplication;

the Lord accepts my prayer.

10All my enemies shall be ashamed and struck with terror;

they shall turn back, and in a moment be put to shame.
