116:4 Then I called on the name of the LORD: "O LORD, I pray, save my life!"

Think

The Psalmists celebrates healing and deliverance.  It sounds like his deliverance is from sickness but it could be from any sort of struggle.  To read a Psalm like this during a difficult time is to be reminded that others have suffered and come through.  You have probably suffered and come through.

Pray

Psalm 116:12 What shall I return to the LORD for all his bounty to me?
