Lord, I have heard of your fame;
I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord.
Repeat them in our day,
in our time make them known;
in wrath remember mercy.

Matthew 6:31-32


So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.

Psalm 37


Prayer in Time of Chastening
A Psalm of David. To bring to remembrance.

1 O Lord, do not rebuke me in Your wrath,
   Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure!
2 For Your arrows pierce me deeply,
   And Your hand presses me down.

3 There is no soundness in my flesh
   Because of Your anger,
   Nor any health in my bones
   Because of my sin.
4 For my iniquities have gone over my head;
   Like a heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
5 My wounds are foul and festering
   Because of my foolishness.

6 I am troubled, I am bowed down greatly;
   I go mourning all the day long.
7 For my loins are full of inflammation,
   And there is no soundness in my flesh.
8 I am feeble and severely broken;
   I groan because of the turmoil of my heart.

9 Lord, all my desire is before You;
   And my sighing is not hidden from You.
10 My heart pants, my strength fails me;
     As for the light of my eyes, it also has gone from me.

11 My loved ones and my friends stand aloof from my plague,
    And my relatives stand afar off.
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.

13 But I, like a deaf man, do not hear;
     And I am like a mute who does not open his mouth.
14 Thus I am like a man who does not hear,
     And in whose mouth is no response.

15 For in You, O Lord, I hope;
     You will hear, O Lord my God.
16 For I said, “Hear me, lest they rejoice over me,
     Lest, when my foot slips, they exalt themselves against me.”

17 For I am ready to fall,
     And my sorrow is continually before me.
18 | For I will declare my iniquity;
     I will be in anguish over my sin.
19 But my enemies are vigorous, and they are strong;
     And those who hate me wrongfully have multiplied.
20 Those also who render evil for good,
     They are my adversaries, because I follow what is good.

21 Do not forsake me, O Lord;
     O my God, be not far from me!
22 Make haste to help me,
     O Lord, my salvation!

Psalm 112:1-3


Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord,
Praise the name of the Lord!
Blessed be the name of the Lord
From this time forth and forevermore!
From the rising of the sun to its going down
The Lord’s name is to be praised.

Psalm 112




4 | The Lord is high above all nations,
   His glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like the Lord our God,
   Who dwells on high,
6 Who humbles Himself to behold
   The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?

7 He raises the poor out of the dust,
   And lifts the needy out of the ash heap,
8 That He may seat him with princes—
   With the princes of His people.
9 He grants the barren woman a home,
   Like a joyful mother of children.

   Praise the Lord!

Amos 7:1-3


Thus the Lord God showed me: Behold, He formed locust swarms at the beginning of the late crop; indeed it was the late crop after the king’s mowings.
And so it was, when they had finished eating the grass of the land, that I said:

“O Lord God, forgive, I pray!
Oh, that Jacob may stand,
For he is small!”

So the Lord relented concerning this.
“It shall not be,” said the Lord.
