Morning Prayer

Psalm 6:
Prayer in time of distress:
first psalm of repentance
Form V 3

"At this stage of revelation there is no hope of praising God beyond the grave: the conclusion should be clear: death would deprive God of one of his servants. The implication is almost impertinent, that God will be the loser if the psalmist dies. May we threaten God in our private prayers? I suppose not, but some of the inspired authors come very near to it. Anyway, let us not be too scrupulous: God knows how awkward we are and that we mean well. He is a Father, not a literary critic." -JG
