Thanksgiving for Recovery from Surgery and Illness of Tita Gina Rodil, Billeth Agustin, T2 Benny Cortuza, Mrs. Marcela Abrea-Diaz, et al...

Psalm 116

Thanksgiving for Recovery from Illness

[1] I love the LORD, because he has heard my voice and my supplications.
[2] Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.
[3] The snares of death encompassed me; the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me; I suffered distress and anguish.
[4] Then I called on the name of the LORD: “O LORD, I pray, save my life!”
[5] Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; our God is merciful.
[6] The LORD protects the simple; when I was brought low, he saved me.
[7] Return, O my soul, to your rest, for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.
[8] For you have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling.
[9] I walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
[10 ] I kept my faith, even when I said, “I am greatly afflicted”;
[11] I said in my consternation, “Everyone is a liar.”
[12] What shall I return to the LORD for all his bounty to me?
[13] I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD,
[14] I will pay my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people.
[15] Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his faithful ones.
[16] O LORD, I am your servant; I am your servant, the child of your serving girl. You have loosed my bonds.
[17] I will offer to you a thanksgiving sacrifice and call on the name of the LORD.
[18] I will pay my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people,
[19] in the courts of the house of the LORD, in your midst, O Jerusalem.

Praise the LORD!
