Daily Psalm and Prayer, August 7, 2020



A Prayer from the Bench of Bishop, the Church in Wales

O God, you know us to be set in the midst of so many and great dangers, that by reason of the frailty of our nature we cannot always stand upright: grant to us such strength and protection as may support us in all dangers and carry us through all temptations; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.



Psalm 88

  O LORD, my God, my Savior, *
by day and night I cry to you.
  Let my prayer enter into your presence; *
incline your ear to my lamentation.
  For I am full of trouble; *
my life is at the brink of the grave.
  I am counted among those who go down to the Pit; *
I have become like one who has no strength;
  Lost among the dead, *
like the slain who lie in the grave,
  Whom you remember no more, *
for they are cut off from your hand.
  You have laid me in the depths of the Pit, *
in dark places, and in the abyss.
  Your anger weighs upon me heavily, *
and all your great waves overwhelm me.
  You have put my friends far from me; you have made me to be abhorred by them; *
I am in prison and cannot get free.
10   My sight has failed me because of trouble; *
LORD, I have called upon you daily; I have stretched out my hands to you.
11   Do you work wonders for the dead? *
will those who have died stand up and give you thanks?
12   Will your loving-kindness be declared in the grave? *
your faithfulness in the land of destruction?
13   Will your wonders be known in the dark? *
or your righteousness in the country where all is forgotten?
14   But as for me, O LORD, I cry to you for help; *
in the morning my prayer comes before you.
15   LORD, why have you rejected me? *
why have you hidden your face from me?
16   Ever since my youth, I have been wretched and at the point of death; *
I have borne your terrors with a troubled mind.
17   Your blazing anger has swept over me; *
your terrors have destroyed me;
18   They surround me all day long like a flood; *
they encompass me on every side.
19   My friend and my neighbor you have put away from me, *
and darkness is my only companion.
