Psalm for Health Care Sunday

This is the responsive Psalm we will be using at our 11am service in Belfast South Methodist this morning, where my Methodist colleague and lead chaplain in the Belfast Hospitals Trust will be speaking on the subject of "Where is God when it hurts?"





How long, O Lord?
How long?
Have you forgotten me for ever?
How long will you turn your face in another direction?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and fears through the night
and each day walk around with sorrow lying like a lump of lead in my heart?
How long will my enemies look down their noses at me?
Look at me and give me an answer, O Lord my God.
Restore light to my eyes,
or I will gladly sink into the long sleep of death;
Then my enemy will say, "I have got the better of him at last,"
and my opponents will dance with joy at my defeat.
But I entrust myself to your unfailing love;
My heart dances with joy at the thought of your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
for he has been
and will be
good to me.
Psalm 13
