Interception

From Psalm 6

Rebuke us not in Your anger
Chasten us not in Disdain
Have mercy upon us
For We have been weakened
Our bones are distressed
Our souls also strained

Return to us Lord once again
Save us for Mercies sake
Deliver us from the oppressor I pray
Forgive all our sin
While we’re still awake

Weary, our bones quiver and quake
We saturate the place where we lay
Our tears overflow the banks of our eyes
But in grief we grow old
Our eyes waste away

Because of our enemies’ day
They parade evil in full display.
Turn back now the tide
For You’ve heard our cry
The sea has been breached
Intercepting the play

Suddenly.

Psalm 6
O Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger,
Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure.
Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak;
O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled.
My soul also is greatly troubled;
But You, O Lord—how long?

Return, O Lord, deliver me!
Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake!
For in death there is no remembrance of You;
In the grave who will give You thanks?

I am weary with my groaning;
All night I make my bed swim;
I drench my couch with my tears.
My eye wastes away because of grief;
It grows old because of all my enemies.

Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;
For the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.
The Lord has heard my supplication;
The Lord will receive my prayer.
10 Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled;
Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.

  1. I add my prayers to yours! Amen!

    1. Hi Karen, thank you. I was interpreting psalm 6 into poem on the same day I was interpreting psalm 35 into a poem. I thought it was just amazing that these two were side by side on the same day because “Interception” follows “Intercession”. The word He gave me in hindsight without knowing while I was writing it is He will intercept the way it seems it’s going if we will make the intercession. I’m just having a blast hearing Him speak His heart to me.
