Psalm 31

I have trusted in you. You are my God

Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am in trouble; my eye is consumed with sorrow,

my soul and my body also.

For my life is wasted with grief, and my years with sighing;

my strength fails me because of my affliction, and my bones are consumed.

I have become a reproach to all my enemies and even to my neighbours, an object

of dread to my acquaintances; when they see me in the street they flee from me.

I am forgotten like one that is dead, out of mind;

I have become like a broken vessel.

For I have heard the whispering of the crowd; fear is on every side;

they scheme together against me, and plot to take my life.

But my trust is in you, O Lord. I have said, ‘You are my God.’

My times are in your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies,

and from those who persecute me.

Make your face to shine upon your servant,

and save me for your mercy’s sake.

I have trusted in you. You are my God

Please remember in your prayers those who are sick
