Ejaculations and short Meditations to be used in time of Sickness and Sorrow, or Danger of Death.

Hear my prayer, O Lord, and let my cry come unto thee.298298Psalm cii. 1-4, 10. Hide not thy face from me in the time of my trouble, incline thine ear unto me when I call; O hear me, and that right soon, For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burnt up as it were with a firebrand. My heart is smitten down and withered like grass, so that I forget to eat my bread; and that because of thine indignation and wrath; for thou hast taken me up and cast me down: thine arrows stick fast in me, and thine hand presseth me sore.299299Psalm xxxviii. 2-4, 18. There is no health in my flesh because of thy displeasure; neither is there any rest in my bones by reason of my sin. My wickednesses are gone over my head, and are a sore burden too heavy for me to bear. But I will confess my wickedness and be sorry for my sin. O Lord, rebuke me not in thine indignation, neither chasten me in thy displeasure.300300Psalm vi. 1. Lord, be merciful unto me, heal my soul for I have sinned against thee.301301Psalm xli. 4.

Have mercy upon me, O God, after thy great goodness, according to the multitude of thy mercies do away mine offences.302302Psalm li. 1. O remember not the sins and offences of my youth; but according to thy mercy think thou upon me, O Lord, for thy goodness.303303Psalm xxv. 6. Wash me thoroughly from my wickedness; and cleanse me from my sin. Make me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.304304Psalm li. 2, 10, 11. Cast me not away from thy presence, from thy all-hallowing and life-giving presence; and take not thy Holy Spirit, thy sanctifying, thy guiding, thy comforting, thy supporting, and confirming Spirit, from me.

O God, thou art my God for ever and ever: thou shalt be my guide unto death.305305Psalm xiviii. 13. Lord, comfort me now that I lie sick upon my bed: make thou my bed in all my sickness.306306Psalm xli. 3. O deliver my soul from the place of hell; and do thou receive me.307307Psalm xlix. 15. My heart is disquieted within me, and the fear of death is fallen upon me.308308Psalm lv. 4. Behold thou hast made my days as it were a span long, and my age is even as nothing in respect of thee; and verily every man living is altogether vanity.309309Psalm xxxix. 6. When thou with rebukes dost chasten man for sin, thou makest his beauty to consume away, like a moth fretting a garment: every man therefore is but vanity. And now, Lord, what is my hope? truly my hope in even in thee. Hear my prayer, O Lord, and with thine ears consider my calling: hold not thy peace at my tears. Take this plague away from me: I am consumed by the means of thy heavy hand. I am a stranger with thee and a sojourner, as all my fathers were. O spare me a little, that I may recover my strength, before I go hence and be no more seen. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: O quicken me according to thy word310310Psalm cxix. 25. And when the snares of death compass me round about, let not the pains of hell take hold of me.311311Psalm cxvi. 3.
