Petition 3.37 | NASB
I must pray for grace to deliver me from death* and to carry me well through my dying moments.
Lord, make me to know my end and what is the extent of my days; let me know and consider how transient I am, that my days are as handbreadths and every man at his best is a mere breath. Psalm 39:4-5(NASB) My days on the earth are like a shadow, and there is no hope. 1 Chronicles 29:15(NASB)
Keep me all the days of my struggle, waiting until my change comes; and then You will call, and I will answer. Job 14:14-15(NASB)
And when I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, be with me, that I may fear no evil; let Your rod and Your staff comfort me. Psalm 23:4(NASB)
* We must all die (save those alive when the Lord comes), so the author directs us to ask for deliverance not from the inevitable fact of death, but from the fear and power of death. Editor.
