Resh Look on my affliction and deliver me, for I do not forget your law. Plead my cause and redeem me; give me life according to your promise! Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek your statutes. Great is your mercy, O LORD; give me life according to your rules. Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, but I do not swerve from your testimonies. I look at the faithless with disgust, because they do not keep your commands. Consider how I love your precepts! Give me life according to your steadfast love. The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.
“Look on my affliction and deliver me, for I do not forget your law.” Here I am, in the youth of my latter years and daily facing new challenges. Ones that I never considered that I would have to face as I cared for my parents in a similar period of their lives. As a very wise man said one time, “A mind is a terrible thing to lose, especially when you know its happening.” Bring me peace as I wrestle with this challenge. And thank you for the patience and love of my beloved wife. We complete our 64th year tomorrow.

Morning Psalm 51, Noon Psalm 119:81-88, Evening Psalm 16. If you follow this regimen, you will pray through the Psalms every 47 days or just under 8 times per year.
An alternate Reading Plan is based on 7 chapters/day from 7 sections of the Scriptures. My groupings are: Genesis-Joshua, Judges to Esther, Job to Song of Solomon, Psalms breaking 119 into convenient sets, Isaiah to Malachi, Matthew to Acts, Romans to Revelation.
Or set your own reading schedule up in convenient groupings as fits your study habits. But a daily time in the Word of the LORD is an absolute.
