The Love of God

Praise the LORD, my soul!
All my being , praise his holy name!
Praise the LORD, my soul, and do not forget how kind he is.
He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.
He keeps me from the grave and blesses me with love and mercy.
He fills my life with good things, so that I stay young and strong like an eagle.

A Prayer for Help

How much longer will you forget me, Lord? Forever? How much longer will you hide yourself to me?
How long must I endure trouble? How long will sorrow fill my heart day and night? How long will my enemies triumph over me?
Look at me, O Lord m God, and answer me. Restore my strength; don't let me die.
Don't let my enemies say, "We have defeated him." Don't let them gloat over my downfall.
I rely on your constant love; I will be glad, because you will rescue me.
I will sing to you O Lord, because you have been good to me.
