I love the LORD because He hears and answers my prayers.
Because He bends down and listens, I will pray as long as I have breath!
Death had its hands around my throat; the terrors of the grave overtook me.
I saw only trouble and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the LORD;
“Please, LORD, save me!”
How kind the LORD is! How kind He is!
So merciful, this God of ours!
The LORD protects those of childlike faith;
I was facing death, and then He saved me.
Now I can rest again, for the LORD has been good to me.
He has saved me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling.
And so I walk in the LORD’s presence as I live here on earth!
I believed in You, so I prayed,
“I am deeply troubled, LORD”
In my anxiety I cried out to you,
“These people are all liars!”
What can I offer the LORD for all He has done for me?
I will lift up a cup symbolizing His salvation;
I will praise the LORD’S name for saving me.
I will keep my promise to the LORD in the presence of His people.
The LORD’S loved ones are precious to Him;
it grieves Him when they die.
O LORD, I am Your servant; yes, I am Your servant, the son of Your handmaid,
and You have freed me from my bonds!
I will offer You a sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of the LORD.
I will keep my promises to the LORD in the presence of His people,
in the house of the LORD, in the heart of Jerusalem.
Lord, I ask that You bring healing to Pastor Mark’s body….for the glory of Your name.
