A Summer Prayer of Petition and Blessing adapted from 63 & 109

Jehovah-Rophe – Healer

He was wounded for our transgressions,

He was bruised for our iniquities;

The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,

And by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

 Lord my God, be kind to me because of Your name. For Your loving kindness is better than life.

Take me out of this trouble. For I am in need and my heart is hurting.  My knees are weak for I have not eaten for days and my body has lost weight. No one understands my trouble. People laugh at me. They look at me and shake their heads. They think there is no hope for me.

Lord my God, be kind to me because of Your name. For Your loving kindness is better than life.

Help me! Save me! Let those who speak against me know that my help is from Your hand alone. Let this bring hope to them. When bad things happen to them, they will know that You are the One that makes good things happen.

O Lord my God,  be kind to me because of Your name. For Your loving kindness is better than life.

I will look for You with all my heart and strength. My soul is thirsty for You. My flesh is weak, wanting You in a dry and tired land where there is no water.

I have seen You in the holy place. I have seen Your power and Your shining greatness. 

I will be full of joy for the goodness that You have shown me. I will give thanks to You in a loud voice and I will praise You. My lips will praise You because Your loving kindness is better than life.

I will give honor to You as long as I live. I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul will be filled as with rich foods and my mouth will praise You with lips of joy.
