Catechesis Notes for the Week —Praying the Psalms: Psalm 6—For Relief from a Troubled Conscience—Psalm 6 is a penitential psalm in which David prays for relief from a troubled conscience and the accusing finger of the Law.  The Lord’s anger is real.  The Law exposes sin and demands punishment.  But Christ has taken this wrath and punishment upon Himself and has redeemed us with His blood.  David confesses that he is weak.  He has no strength of his own to save himself from the affliction of sin and the sentence of death. He is weary because his conscience is plagued by his sin and the enemies of the Gospel. But the Lord’s mercy and forgiveness in Christ is his comfort and the medicine for a sick and troubled conscience. The voice of faith cries out to the Lord for help and relief from all sin.  The workers of iniquity are those who not only reject the Gospel of God’s grace in Christ, but who also taunt and belittle those who rely upon God’s mercy.  “Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity; for the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.  The Lord has heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer.”CP181021
