A Prayer for Healing

411 How blessed is he who considers the helpless ; The Lord will deliver him in a day of trouble . 2 The Lord will protect him and keep him alive , And he shall be called blessed upon the earth ; And do not give him over to the desire of his enemies . 3 The Lord will sustain him upon his sickbed e ; In his illness , You restore him to health e . 4 As for me, I said , "O Lord , be gracious to me; Heal my soul , for I have sinned against You."

5 My enemies speak evil against me, "When will he die , and his name perish ?" 6 And when he comes to see me, he speaks falsehood ; His heart gathers wickedness to itself; When he goes outside , he tells it. 7 All who hate me whisper together against me; Against me they devise my hurt , saying, 8 "A wicked thing is poured out upon him, That when he lies down , he will not rise up again ." 9 Even my close friend e in whom I trusted , Who ate my bread , Has lifted up his heel against me. 10 But You, O Lord , be gracious to me and raise me up, That I may repay them. 11 By this I know that You are pleased with me, Because my enemy does not shout in triumph over me. 12 As for me, You uphold me in my integrity , And You set me in Your presence forever . 13 Blessed be the Lord , the God of Israel , From everlasting to everlasting . Amen and Amen .
