The Prayer of the a Afflicted Soul
Psalm 6:1-10
O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, neither chasten me in your hot displeasure.…

1. In our afflictions we must look to God, and not to secondary causes.

2. To go to God for help in our distresses. When, then, we are wounded, we must go to one who can cure us, even Him who hath heaved us up, and cast us down again, and will again raise us up.

3. Prayer is our wings to fly to God in our affliction.

4. Means by which God brings us to obedience.

(1)  His Word.

(2)  His rod. If we refuse to be ruled by God's Word, then God will not fail to correct us with His rod.

(A. Symson.)
