Psalm 6:2-6 (TLB)
2 Pity me, O Lord, for I am weak. Heal me, for my body is sick,
3 and I am upset and disturbed. My mind is filled with apprehension and with gloom. Oh, restore me soon.
4 Come, O Lord, and make me well. In your kindness save me.
5 For if I die, I cannot give you glory by praising you before my friends.
6 I am worn out with pain; every night my pillow is wet with tears.

I have noticed so many people have been posting on Facebook how sick they are and requesting prayer. The Psalmist David if he had lived in our day may have posted something like this psalm but it would have been directed towards the Lord. Matthew Henry in his commentary wrote, “Is any afflicted? Is any sick? Let him sing this psalm.” When David became king, he appointed singers and musicians to play music all the time in the tabernacle as a constant worship to the Lord. This psalm is one of those times when he instructed the chief Musician to play on the Sheminith (eight-stringed lyre) this psalm that he had written. In the midst of his battle with enemies that tried to destroy him he became ill. It may have been because he was exhausted from all the battles that his immune system was down. He reveals that he is sick in body, troubled in his mind, and his soul needs attention. The rest of the Psalm ends with David rebuking the sickness and his enemies because the Lord has heard his prayer and his weeping. We all go through these times when our bodies become weak. There are those who are worn out with pain that they go to sleep with tears falling upon their pillow. Do no despair the Lord sees your pain, hears your prayers, and deliverance is on its way. Maybe we need to follow David’s example and start singing and praising the Lord. Put on some music of worship that glorifies the Lord and speak aloud victory over all your pain and suffering. The blessings of healing are on their way. Receive your blessings today of healing so you can give glory to the Lord before all your friends.
