Monday of the Fourth Week in Lent

Read

The Seven Penitential Psalms, Day One:

During times when we wish to express repentance, and especially during Lent, it is customary to pray the seven penitential psalms. The penitential designation of these psalms dates back to the seventh century. Prayerfully reciting these psalms will help us to recognize our sinfulness, express our sorrow and ask for God's forgiveness.

Today we will focus on Psalm 6.

Reflect

Read this reflection on Psalm 6—Prayer in Distress.

Pray

"Have pity on me, LORD, for I am weak; heal me, LORD, for my bones are shuddering." (Ps 6:3, NABRE)

Act

In this psalm, the psalmist proclaims his weakness before God, with tears and sighing. Yet he lifts his prayers to the Lord, confident in the Lord, who is merciful.

Listen to a recording of Psalm 6 as you read along with your Bible.
