PSALM 38*
Prayer of an Afflicted Sinner

  1. a psalm of David, for remembrance.

  2. Lord punish me no longer in your anger;
    in your wrath do not chastise me!

  3. Your arrows have sunk deep in me;
    your hand has come down upon me.

  4. My flesh is afflicted because of your anger;
    my frame aches because of my sin.

  5. My inequities overwhelm me,
    a burden beyond my strength.
    II.


  1. Foul and festering are my sores,
    because of my folly.
  2. I am stooped and deeply bowed;
    all day I go about mourning.
  3. My loins burn with fever;
    my flesh is afflicted.
  4. I am numb and utterly crushed;
    I wail with aguish of heart.
  5. My Lord, my deepest yearning is before you;
    my groaning is not hidden from you.
  6. My heart shudders, my strength forsakes me;
    the very light of my eyes has failed.
  7. Friends and companions shun my pain;
    my neighbors stand far off.
  8. Those who seek my life lay snares for me;
    they seek my misfortune, they speak of
    ruin;
    they plot treachery all the day.
    III

  1. But I am like the deaf, hearing nothing;
    like the dumb, saying nothing
  2. Like someone who does not hear,
    who has no answer ready.
  3. Lord, I wait for you;
    O Lord, my God, answer me!
  4. For I fear they will gloat,
    exult over me if I stumble.
    IV.

18.I am very near failing;
my pain is with me always.
19. I acknowledge my guilt
and grieve over my sin.
20.But many are my foes without cause,
a multitude of enemies without reason,
21 Repaying me evil for good;
harassing me for persuing good.
22.Forsake me not, O Lord;
my God, be not far from me!
23.Come quickly to help me,
my Lord and salvation!

I am sick and just got out of the hospital today. I want to offer my discomfort for her and anyone else who can benefit from the grace that I may be able to procure from Heaven through the intercesision of St. Francis and the saints.

She’ll be in my prayers. St. Camillus, pray for us.

Almighty God, please be with Joy as she waits for further results regarding this cancer. We hope it hasn’t spread, dear God, but we thank You for the gift of those whose research, and those whose surgery and care give us hope for recovery. Please help Joy to be at peace, and to find You in company with her in her illness.

and others who have this illness.

I have spoken with Joy today and she would like me to express her gratitude for all your loving and caring prayers. She visited her surgeon yesterday , and learned that the tumour which is apparently quite large ,has not grown nor spread to any other part of her . She is to commence a course of chemotherapy commencing in 14 days time and ending in 18 weeks thereafter , and followed by a mastectomy . I pray that Almighty God will keep her in His Loving Care and Mercy and protect her with His Healing Power .
May God Bless you all for your prayers .
