Sermon Text: Psalm 88

Psa. 88:1 O LORD, God of my salvation;
I cry out day and night before you.
Psa. 88:2 Let my prayer come before you;
incline your ear to my cry!
Psa. 88:3 For my soul is full of troubles,
and my life draws near to Sheol.
Psa. 88:4 I am counted among those who go down to the pit;
I am a man who has no strength,
Psa. 88:5 like one set loose among the dead,
like the slain that lie in the grave,
like those whom you remember no more,
for they are cut off from your hand.
Psa. 88:6 You have put me in the depths of the pit,
in the regions dark and deep.
Psa. 88:7 Your wrath lies heavy upon me,
and you overwhelm me with all your waves. Selah
Psa. 88:8 You have caused my companions to shun me;
you have made me a horror* to them.
I am shut in so that I cannot escape;
Psa. 88:9 my eye grows dim through sorrow.
Every day I call upon you, O LORD;
I spread out my hands to you.
Psa. 88:10 Do you work wonders for the dead?
Do the departed rise up to praise you? Selah
Psa. 88:11 Is your steadfast love declared in the grave,
or your faithfulness in Abaddon?
Psa. 88:12 Are your wonders known in the darkness,
or your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
Psa. 88:13 But I, O LORD, cry to you;
in the morning my prayer comes before you.
Psa. 88:14 O LORD, why do you cast my soul away?
Why do you hide your face from me?
Psa. 88:15 Afflicted and close to death from my youth up,
I suffer your terrors; I am helpless.*
Psa. 88:16 Your wrath has swept over me;
your dreadful assaults destroy me.
Psa. 88:17 They surround me like a flood all day long;
they close in on me together.
Psa. 88:18 You have caused my beloved and my friend to shun me;
my companions have become darkness.*

Sermon Text: Psalm 86

Psa. 86:1 Incline your ear, O LORD, and answer me,
for I am poor and needy.
Psa. 86:2 Preserve my life, for I am godly;
save your servant, who trusts in you—you are my God.
Psa. 86:3 Be gracious to me, O Lord,
for to you do I cry all the day.
Psa. 86:4 Gladden the soul of your servant,
for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
Psa. 86:5 For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving,
abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.
Psa. 86:6 Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer;
listen to my plea for grace.
Psa. 86:7 In the day of my trouble I call upon you,
for you answer me.
Psa. 86:8 ¶ There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,
nor are there any works like yours.
Psa. 86:9 All the nations you have made shall come
and worship before you, O Lord,
and shall glorify your name.
Psa. 86:10 For you are great and do wondrous things;
you alone are God.
Psa. 86:11 Teach me your way, O LORD,
that I may walk in your truth;
unite my heart to fear your name.
Psa. 86:12 I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,
and I will glorify your name forever.
Psa. 86:13 For great is your steadfast love toward me;
you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
Psa. 86:14 O God, insolent men have risen up against me;
a band of ruthless men seek my life,
and they do not set you before them.
Psa. 86:15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.
Psa. 86:16 Turn to me and be gracious to me;
give your strength to your servant,
and save the son of your maidservant.
Psa. 86:17 Show me a sign of your favor,
that those who hate me may see and be put to shame
because you, LORD, have helped me and comforted me.

Sermon Text: Psalm 85

Psa. 85:1 LORD, you were favorable to your land;
you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
Psa. 85:2 You forgave the iniquity of your people;
you covered all their sin. Selah
Psa. 85:3 You withdrew all your wrath;
you turned from your hot anger.
Psa. 85:4 Restore us again, O God of our salvation,
and put away your indignation toward us!
Psa. 85:5 Will you be angry with us forever?
Will you prolong your anger to all generations?
Psa. 85:6 Will you not revive us again,
that your people may rejoice in you?
Psa. 85:7 Show us your steadfast love, O LORD,
and grant us your salvation.
Psa. 85:8 Let me hear what God the LORD will speak,
for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints;
but let them not turn back to folly.
Psa. 85:9 Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him,
that glory may dwell in our land.
Psa. 85:10 Steadfast love and faithfulness meet;
righteousness and peace kiss each other.
Psa. 85:11 Faithfulness springs up from the ground,
and righteousness looks down from the sky.
Psa. 85:12 Yes, the LORD will give what is good,
and our land will yield its increase.
Psa. 85:13 Righteousness will go before him
and make his footsteps a way.
