-Praying Psalm 81

by Request ~ August 31st, 2015
according to The Gittith.[1] Of Asaph.

81 Sing aloud to God our strength;
shout for joy to the God of Jacob!
2 Raise a song; sound the tambourine,
the sweet lyre with the harp.
3 Blow the trumpet at the new moon,
at the full moon, on our feast day.

4 For it is a statute for Israel,
a rule[2] of the God of Jacob.
5 He made it a decree in Joseph
when he went out over[3] the land of Egypt.
I hear a language I had not known:
6 “I relieved your[4] shoulder of the burden;
your hands were freed from the basket.
7 In distress you called, and I delivered you;
I answered you in the secret place of thunder;
I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah
8 Hear, O my people, while I admonish you!
O Israel, if you would but listen to me!
9 There shall be no strange god among you;
you shall not bow down to a foreign god.
10 I am the Lord your God,
who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.

11 “But my people did not listen to my voice;
Israel would not submit to me.
12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts,
to follow their own counsels.
13 Oh, that my people would listen to me,
that Israel would walk in my ways!
14 I would soon subdue their enemies
and turn my hand against their foes.
15 Those who hate the Lord would cringe toward him,
and their fate would last forever.
16 But he would feed you[5] with the finest of the wheat,
and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”  (ESV)

Our Father,

You have blessed this nation on every turn; yet we are stubborn and go our own way without consideration to your counsel and your Word. Many today do not even believe in you or your Son; but there are also many who still praise your name and profess the name of Jesus.

You have said in your Word that if we repent and seek your face that you would bless our people and our land once more; many are seeking your face daily and asking for your forgiveness.

Nature is in rebellion over our whole country and war is calling us to far away lands and even touching our own cities; economic woes and difficulties are expanding all around the world and the hope of many are disappearing with their investments. Our enemies are trying to bring us down and destroy us.

We cry unto you for this nation once more that your Spirit will hover over our cities and unite our people as never before. The nation is on the verge of falling apart but that is the plan of the evil one; rise up and stop his hordes from destroying our nation and bring revival and a new awakening to this people once more while there is yet day.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 80

by Request ~ August 30th, 2015
Of Asaph, a Psalm.

80 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel,
you who lead Joseph like a flock.
You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth.
2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh,
stir up your might
and come to save us!

3 Restore us,[1] O God;
let your face shine, that we may be saved!

4 O Lord God of hosts,
how long will you be angry with your people’s prayers?
5 You have fed them with the bread of tears
and given them tears to drink in full measure.
6 You make us an object of contention for our neighbors,
and our enemies laugh among themselves.

7 Restore us, O God of hosts;
let your face shine, that we may be saved!

8 You brought a vine out of Egypt;
you drove out the nations and planted it.
9 You cleared the ground for it;
it took deep root and filled the land.
10 The mountains were covered with its shade,
the mighty cedars with its branches.
11 It sent out its branches to the sea
and its shoots to the River.[2]
12 Why then have you broken down its walls,
so that all who pass along the way pluck its fruit?
13 The boar from the forest ravages it,
and all that move in the field feed on it.

14 Turn again, O God of hosts!
Look down from heaven, and see;
have regard for this vine,
15 the stock that your right hand planted,
and for the son whom you made strong for yourself.
16 They have burned it with fire; they have cut it down;
may they perish at the rebuke of your face!
17 But let your hand be on the man of your right hand,
the son of man whom you have made strong for yourself!
18 Then we shall not turn back from you;
give us life, and we will call upon your name!

19 Restore us, O Lord God of hosts!
Let your face shine, that we may be saved!  (ESV)

Footnotes:

1.  Or Turn us again; also verses 7, 19

2. That is, the Euphrates


Our Father,

Restore us, O Lord God of hosts!  Let your face shine upon us that we may be saved!

Your church in the Middle East is being destroyed; enemies who say they are following your word are cutting down and beheading your servants. They invoke your name as they rape and enslave women and children; they laugh and rejoice as they pull down churches that have been there for over a thousand years.

Rise up and restore your people Lord, let your face shine upon them and protect them from the evil one and his minions. Many are saying that soon nothing will be left of your church in its birthplace as hundreds of thousands of people that bare the name of y0ur Son are being persecuted expelled from the land of their fathers.

Rise up and restore your people and bring revival instead among the very perpetrators of this evil. Let those who are pulling down your churches be converted and brought to the truth of your Son Jesus. Let dreams and visions, signs and wonders turn back the evil that is destroying your church and people while there is yet day.

Restore your people, O Lord God of hosts!  Let your face shine upon upon them that they might be saved while there is yet day.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 79

by Request ~ August 29th, 2015
A Psalm of Asaph.

79 O God, the nations have come into your inheritance;
they have defiled your holy temple;
they have laid Jerusalem in ruins.
2 They have given the bodies of your servants
to the birds of the heavens for food,
the flesh of your faithful to the beasts of the earth.
3 They have poured out their blood like water
all around Jerusalem,
and there was no one to bury them.
4 We have become a taunt to our neighbors,
mocked and derided by those around us.

5 How long, O Lord? Will you be angry forever?
Will your jealousy burn like fire?
6 Pour out your anger on the nations
that do not know you,
and on the kingdoms
that do not call upon your name!
7 For they have devoured Jacob
and laid waste his habitation.

8 Do not remember against us our former iniquities;[1]
let your compassion come speedily to meet us,
for we are brought very low.
9 Help us, O God of our salvation,
for the glory of your name;
deliver us, and atone for our sins,
for your name’s sake!
10 Why should the nations say,
“Where is their God?”
Let the avenging of the outpoured blood of your servants
be known among the nations before our eyes!

11 Let the groans of the prisoners come before you;
according to your great power, preserve those doomed to die!
12 Return sevenfold into the lap of our neighbors
the taunts with which they have taunted you, O Lord!
13 But we your people, the sheep of your pasture,
will give thanks to you forever;
from generation to generation we will recount your praise.  (ESV)

Footnotes:

1. Or the iniquities of former generations


Our Father,

Praise your name O Lord; praise your name. We your people, the sheep of your pasture, will give thanks to you forever; from generation to generation we will recount your praise. 

Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of your name; deliver us, and atone for our sins, for your name’s sake! Why should our enemies say, ‘They serve a false religion and worship a false God.’ Let the avenging of the outpoured blood of your servants be known among the nations before our eyes!

Let the groans of the prisoners come before you;  according to your great power, preserve those doomed to die! Save them O Lord from their tormentors and release them from their captors.

Hundreds of thousands who bare the name of your Son Jesus are being slaughtered every year supposedly in your name by a people who respect a book with words that did not come from you and a prophet you did not call.

Rise up and hear the cries of your people in the Middle East and Africa that are being slaughtered and enslaved every day. Let the truth ring across the land and let your Kingdom come down in the midst of your people and protect your servants. Let your true Word be preached and let signs and wonders confound the enemy and let your church expand exponentially in the face of persecution and death.

Let many of the very killers of your people be converted to the truth of your Son Jesus Christ. Let a secret revival rise up in their midst and surprise them with your love. For you so loved the world that you gave your only Son; even for those who are killing your servants and destroying your church.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 78

by Request ~ August 28th, 2015
A Maskil[1] of Asaph.

78 Give ear, O my people, to my teaching;
incline your ears to the words of my mouth!
2 I will open my mouth in a parable;
I will utter dark sayings from of old,
3 things that we have heard and known,
that our fathers have told us.
4 We will not hide them from their children,
but tell to the coming generation
the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might,
and the wonders that he has done.

5 He established a testimony in Jacob
and appointed a law in Israel,
which he commanded our fathers
to teach to their children,
6 that the next generation might know them,
the children yet unborn,
and arise and tell them to their children,
7 so that they should set their hope in God
and not forget the works of God,
but keep his commandments;
8 and that they should not be like their fathers,
a stubborn and rebellious generation,
a generation whose heart was not steadfast,
whose spirit was not faithful to God.

9 The Ephraimites, armed with[2] the bow,
turned back on the day of battle.
10 They did not keep God’s covenant,
but refused to walk according to his law.
11 They forgot his works
and the wonders that he had shown them.
12 In the sight of their fathers he performed wonders
in the land of Egypt, in the fields of Zoan.
13 He divided the sea and let them pass through it,
and made the waters stand like a heap.
14 In the daytime he led them with a cloud,
and all the night with a fiery light.
15 He split rocks in the wilderness
and gave them drink abundantly as from the deep.
16 He made streams come out of the rock
and caused waters to flow down like rivers.

17 Yet they sinned still more against him,
rebelling against the Most High in the desert.
18 They tested God in their heart
by demanding the food they craved.
19 They spoke against God, saying,
“Can God spread a table in the wilderness?
20 He struck the rock so that water gushed out
and streams overflowed.
Can he also give bread
or provide meat for his people?”

21 Therefore, when the Lord heard, he was full of wrath;
a fire was kindled against Jacob;
his anger rose against Israel,
22 because they did not believe in God
and did not trust his saving power.
23 Yet he commanded the skies above
and opened the doors of heaven,
24 and he rained down on them manna to eat
and gave them the grain of heaven.
25 Man ate of the bread of the angels;
he sent them food in abundance.
26 He caused the east wind to blow in the heavens,
and by his power he led out the south wind;
27 he rained meat on them like dust,
winged birds like the sand of the seas;
28 he let them fall in the midst of their camp,
all around their dwellings.
29 And they ate and were well filled,
for he gave them what they craved.
30 But before they had satisfied their craving,
while the food was still in their mouths,
31 the anger of God rose against them,
and he killed the strongest of them
and laid low the young men of Israel.

32 In spite of all this, they still sinned;
despite his wonders, they did not believe.
33 So he made their days vanish like[3] a breath,[4]
and their years in terror.
34 When he killed them, they sought him;
they repented and sought God earnestly.
35 They remembered that God was their rock,
the Most High God their redeemer.
36 But they flattered him with their mouths;
they lied to him with their tongues.
37 Their heart was not steadfast toward him;
they were not faithful to his covenant.
38 Yet he, being compassionate,
atoned for their iniquity
and did not destroy them;
he restrained his anger often
and did not stir up all his wrath.
39 He remembered that they were but flesh,
a wind that passes and comes not again.
40 How often they rebelled against him in the wilderness
and grieved him in the desert!
41 They tested God again and again
and provoked the Holy One of Israel.
42 They did not remember his power[5]
or the day when he redeemed them from the foe,
43 when he performed his signs in Egypt
and his marvels in the fields of Zoan.
44 He turned their rivers to blood,
so that they could not drink of their streams.
45 He sent among them swarms of flies, which devoured them,
and frogs, which destroyed them.
46 He gave their crops to the destroying locust
and the fruit of their labor to the locust.
47 He destroyed their vines with hail
and their sycamores with frost.
48 He gave over their cattle to the hail
and their flocks to thunderbolts.
49 He let loose on them his burning anger,
wrath, indignation, and distress,
a company of destroying angels.
50 He made a path for his anger;
he did not spare them from death,
but gave their lives over to the plague.
51 He struck down every firstborn in Egypt,
the firstfruits of their strength in the tents of Ham.
52 Then he led out his people like sheep
and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.
53 He led them in safety, so that they were not afraid,
but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
54 And he brought them to his holy land,
to the mountain which his right hand had won.
55 He drove out nations before them;
he apportioned them for a possession
and settled the tribes of Israel in their tents.

56 Yet they tested and rebelled against the Most High God
and did not keep his testimonies,
57 but turned away and acted treacherously like their fathers;
they twisted like a deceitful bow.
58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places;
they moved him to jealousy with their idols.
59 When God heard, he was full of wrath,
and he utterly rejected Israel.
60 He forsook his dwelling at Shiloh,
the tent where he dwelt among mankind,
61 and delivered his power to captivity,
his glory to the hand of the foe.
62 He gave his people over to the sword
and vented his wrath on his heritage.
63 Fire devoured their young men,
and their young women had no marriage song.
64 Their priests fell by the sword,
and their widows made no lamentation.
65 Then the Lord awoke as from sleep,
like a strong man shouting because of wine.
66 And he put his adversaries to rout;
he put them to everlasting shame.

67 He rejected the tent of Joseph;
he did not choose the tribe of Ephraim,
68 but he chose the tribe of Judah,
Mount Zion, which he loves.
69 He built his sanctuary like the high heavens,
like the earth, which he has founded forever.
70 He chose David his servant
and took him from the sheepfolds;
71 from following the nursing ewes he brought him
to shepherd Jacob his people,
Israel his inheritance.
72 With upright heart he shepherded them
and guided them with his skillful hand.  (ESV)

Our Father,

You have blessed our nation from the very beginning;  you have given us good leaders through many generations and this country rose to lead the world.

Through wars and difficulties you have watched over us and prospered us regardless of the challenges. Throughout that history the majority of our people worshipped you, honored your Word, and took on the name of your Son.

Now we live in a generation when many no longer believe that the world was created; so many reject your Word and the testimony of your goodness and miracles in former generations. Even some are rising up to restrict your people and your church.

Many are saying that our nation is overdue for judgment and trouble; nature seems to be rising up against us. Supposedly in your name, people from far away lands are declaring war against our nation and against your people and church. The economy seems to be broken and no one has the answers or ability to put it back together; so many today are losing hope.

Rise up O Lord and let your Spirit hover over our nation once more; bring forth new leaders in your church and let your Spirit bless them in a fresh and powerful way. Let a new generation experience your signs and wonders in their midst. Bring forth healings and miracles in the cities and in the countryside; let your Word be demonstrated in a new generation that does not know you or believe in your Son.

Let a new generation rise up to praise your name from sea to shining sea; let your Word be respected once more and let your church and people fulfill their destiny while there is yet day.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 77

by Request ~ August 27th, 2015
A Psalm of Asaph.

77 I cry aloud to God,
aloud to God, and he will hear me.
2 In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord;
in the night my hand is stretched out without wearying;
my soul refuses to be comforted.
3 When I remember God, I moan;
when I meditate, my spirit faints. Selah

4 You hold my eyelids open;
I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5 I consider the days of old,
the years long ago.
6 I said,[1] “Let me remember my song in the night;
let me meditate in my heart.”
Then my spirit made a diligent search:
7 “Will the Lord spurn forever,
and never again be favorable?
8 Has his steadfast love forever ceased?
Are his promises at an end for all time?
9 Has God forgotten to be gracious?
Has he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah

10 Then I said, “I will appeal to this,
to the years of the right hand of the Most High.”[2]

11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will remember your wonders of old.
12 I will ponder all your work,
and meditate on your mighty deeds.
13 Your way, O God, is holy.
What god is great like our God?
14 You are the God who works wonders;
you have made known your might among the peoples.
15 You with your arm redeemed your people,
the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah

16 When the waters saw you, O God,
when the waters saw you, they were afraid;
indeed, the deep trembled.
17 The clouds poured out water;
the skies gave forth thunder;
your arrows flashed on every side.
18 The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind;
your lightnings lighted up the world;
the earth trembled and shook.
19 Your way was through the sea,
your path through the great waters;
yet your footprints were unseen.[3]
20 You led your people like a flock
by the hand of Moses and Aaron. (ESV)

Footnotes:

1. Hebrew lacks I said

2.  Or This is my grief: that the right hand of the Most High has changed

3.  Hebrew unknown


Our Father,

We will remember your deeds O Lord; yes, we will remember your wonders of old. We will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds. Your way, O God, is holy; What god is great like our God? You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples in past generations. By the might of your arm and your Son Jesus you have redeemed your people.

You led your people through the hand of Moses and Aaron, twelve Apostles led the church from the beginning and you have called forth strong leaders across the centuries to build up and refine your church and people.

We cry to you today to send forth new leaders in this generation that are strong in your Spirit to lead us now in our time of need. So many have come against your church; powerful politicians and judges, educators and media folks, have all united to control and contain the church and the freedom of your believers to live according to your Word. Worse are the church leaders who are nothing but wolves in sheep’s clothing looking out for their own comforts and betraying the mission that you have given your people.

Bring forth strong leaders, let your Kingdom come down in our midst, and let the Word go forth to the nations in power with signs and wonders confirming the good news of your Son in every language. 

So many doubt the record of your wonders of old, let them experience miracles and healings once more in this generation. Let the evil one and his followers try to explain it all away and stop it in vain while the whole world comes to a knowledge of your Son Jesus and praises your name as never before.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 76

by Request ~ August 26th, 2015
A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.

76 In Judah God is known;
his name is great in Israel.
2 His abode has been established in Salem,
his dwelling place in Zion.
3 There he broke the flashing arrows,
the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah

4 Glorious are you, more majestic
than the mountains full of prey.
5 The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil;
they sank into sleep;
all the men of war
were unable to use their hands.
6 At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
both rider and horse lay stunned.

7 But you, you are to be feared!
Who can stand before you
when once your anger is roused?
8 From the heavens you uttered judgment;
the earth feared and was still,
9 when God arose to establish judgment,
to save all the humble of the earth. Selah

10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise you;
the remnant[1] of wrath you will put on like a belt.
11 Make your vows to the Lord your God and perform them;
let all around him bring gifts
to him who is to be feared,
12 who cuts off the spirit of princes,
who is to be feared by the kings of the earth.  (ESV)

Footnotes:

1.  Or extremity


Our Father,

From the heavens you uttered judgment and from your Kingdom you have established your mercy over all who are humbled before you and have faith in your Son.

Nations have risen and fallen, kings and rulers have been established and replaced. Your blessings have been over our nation from the beginning and now so many have rebelled against your word and say there is no God over creation that can judge our actions. So many are calling evil good and righteousness ‘on the wrong side of history.’

Those who still respect and live according to your Word are now being singled out as judgmental bigots who unlawfully discriminate against others. The church of your Son is facing restrictions and opposition in a land that is suppose to have freedom of religion but increasingly that right is being trumped by those who sin against nature and your creation.

Rise up O Lord and empower your people to face the challenges of this day and bring down your Kingdom in our midst. Let your servants go forth with signs and wonders confirming your Kingdom message and let healing and miracles silence the evil one and his minions. Let the church which is divided become unified in purpose once more.

Let this nation be awakened by your Holy Spirit once more and let the captives be turned free from their addictions and those suffering from mental disorders, that the evil one has used to perpetrate his plans, be healed.

Let the church and the servants of Christ once more lead the way to healing between the races and cultures of our nation while there is yet day. Let your Kingdom come, your will be done on the earth as it is in Heaven.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 75

by Request ~ August 25th, 2015
A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.

75 We give thanks to you, O God;
we give thanks, for your name is near.
We[1] recount your wondrous deeds.

2 “At the set time that I appoint
I will judge with equity.
3 When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants,
it is I who keep steady its pillars. Selah
4 I say to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’
and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horn;
5 do not lift up your horn on high,
or speak with haughty neck.’”

6 For not from the east or from the west
and not from the wilderness comes lifting up,
7 but it is God who executes judgment,
putting down one and lifting up another.
8 For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup
with foaming wine, well mixed,
and he pours out from it,
and all the wicked of the earth
shall drain it down to the dregs.

9 But I will declare it forever;
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 All the horns of the wicked I will cut off,
but the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up.

1. Hebrew They


Our Father,

We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks, for your name is dear to us and your Spirit attends us daily. We praise your name for the wonderful deeds that you have done in the past and for the hope you have instilled within us for this life and the life to come.

Many are saying that time is short, the signs seem to indicate that your Son will be coming back soon. While there is yet day, O God, bring down your Kingdom in our midst and let your servants be empowered as never before to spread your Word and gospel to every nation, people, and tongue with signs following to confirm that you are still acting in history and still in control of all creation.

So many are declaring today that there was no creator and everything happened by accident. Nature seems to be rising up and rebelling against humanity, and wars and rumors of wars are reaching us daily from far and near.  False teachers are rising up right and left but the hopes of many are being destroyed except those who have read your Word and believe in your Son Jesus.

Let the church rise up as never before and bring your Word and prove your power to a new generation while there is yet day.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 74

by Request ~ August 24th, 2015
A Maskil[1] of Asaph.

74 O God, why do you cast us off forever?
Why does your anger smoke against the sheep of your pasture?
2 Remember your congregation, which you have purchased of old,
which you have redeemed to be the tribe of your heritage!
Remember Mount Zion, where you have dwelt.
3 Direct your steps to the perpetual ruins;
the enemy has destroyed everything in the sanctuary!

4 Your foes have roared in the midst of your meeting place;
they set up their own signs for signs.
5 They were like those who swing axes
in a forest of trees.[2]
6 And all its carved wood
they broke down with hatchets and hammers.
7 They set your sanctuary on fire;
they profaned the dwelling place of your name,
bringing it down to the ground.
8 They said to themselves, “We will utterly subdue them”;
they burned all the meeting places of God in the land.

9 We do not see our signs;
there is no longer any prophet,
and there is none among us who knows how long.
10 How long, O God, is the foe to scoff?
Is the enemy to revile your name forever?
11 Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand?
Take it from the fold of your garment[3] and destroy them!

12 Yet God my King is from of old,
working salvation in the midst of the earth.
13 You divided the sea by your might;
you broke the heads of the sea monsters[4] on the waters.
14 You crushed the heads of Leviathan;
you gave him as food for the creatures of the wilderness.
15 You split open springs and brooks;
you dried up ever-flowing streams.
16 Yours is the day, yours also the night;
you have established the heavenly lights and the sun.
17 You have fixed all the boundaries of the earth;
you have made summer and winter.

18 Remember this, O Lord, how the enemy scoffs,
and a foolish people reviles your name.
19 Do not deliver the soul of your dove to the wild beasts;
do not forget the life of your poor forever.

20 Have regard for the covenant,
for the dark places of the land are full of the habitations of violence.
21 Let not the downtrodden turn back in shame;
let the poor and needy praise your name.

22 Arise, O God, defend your cause;
remember how the foolish scoff at you all the day!
23 Do not forget the clamor of your foes,
the uproar of those who rise against you, which goes up continually! (ESV)

Our Father,

How long, O God, is the foe to scoff? Is the enemy to revile your name forever? His minions are free to subdue your people, his followers to restrict your church. Arise, O God, defend your cause.

The enemy expects us to shrink back into the church buildings and say our prayers while they hold sway over all the cities, nation, culture. Rise up O God and bring revival instead. You have done mighty deeds in this nation in past generations. The nation is falling away from you and the truth. Let your Kingdom come down in our midst and demonstrate your power among your people once more.

Let your good news be proclaimed unhindered in the streets, your healing and signs and wonders in the marketplaces. Let those enslaved by the enemy be release from their addictions and let your love and peace come to the cities where the enemy has sown division and strife.

Our enemies say- ‘ let Christians have their religious freedom in their church buildings but we will take them out of the schools and marketplace.’ Rise up O Lord and let the schools and marketplaces be the ground where your power is demonstrated once more. Let your Word be preached in the public square and let a new generation be healed and revived; bring a new awakening to this nation and people. 

Let your servants rise up and bring your love and healing to the neighborhoods and the nation. Let it begin in the church, bring unity first among the people called by the name of your Son. Break down all of the racial, theological, and cultural divides among your people, let them become an ensign of hope and healing to the nation.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 73

by Request ~ August 23rd, 2015
A Psalm of Asaph.

73 Truly God is good to Israel,
to those who are pure in heart.
2 But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled,
my steps had nearly slipped.
3 For I was envious of the arrogant
when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

4 For they have no pangs until death;
their bodies are fat and sleek.
5 They are not in trouble as others are;
they are not stricken like the rest of mankind.
6 Therefore pride is their necklace;
violence covers them as a garment.
7 Their eyes swell out through fatness;
their hearts overflow with follies.
8 They scoff and speak with malice;
loftily they threaten oppression.
9 They set their mouths against the heavens,
and their tongue struts through the earth.
10 Therefore his people turn back to them,
and find no fault in them.[1]
11 And they say, “How can God know?
Is there knowledge in the Most High?”
12 Behold, these are the wicked;
always at ease, they increase in riches.
13 All in vain have I kept my heart clean
and washed my hands in innocence.
14 For all the day long I have been stricken
and rebuked every morning.
15 If I had said, “I will speak thus,”
I would have betrayed the generation of your children.

16 But when I thought how to understand this,
it seemed to me a wearisome task,
17 until I went into the sanctuary of God;
then I discerned their end.

18 Truly you set them in slippery places;
you make them fall to ruin.
19 How they are destroyed in a moment,
swept away utterly by terrors!
20 Like a dream when one awakes,
O Lord, when you rouse yourself, you despise them as phantoms.
21 When my soul was embittered,
when I was pricked in heart,
22 I was brutish and ignorant;
I was like a beast toward you.

23 Nevertheless, I am continually with you;
you hold my right hand.
24 You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will receive me to glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but you?
And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength[2] of my heart and my portion forever.

27 For behold, those who are far from you shall perish;
you put an end to everyone who is unfaithful to you.
28 But for me it is good to be near God;
I have made the Lord God my refuge,
that I may tell of all your works.  (ESV)

Our Father,

Truly those who believe are blessed and continually in your presence for now and forever. You hold our right hands, your Holy Spirit guides us and counsels us daily, and afterward you will receive us to glory.

Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides your Son and your Kingdom.  My flesh and my heart may fail, but you are the strength of our hearts and our portion forever.

However, those who are far from you shall not receive a reward and those who are unfaithful to you will cry out for your mercy in the life to come. But for us it is good to be near you and partake of your Holy Spirit daily and we will tell of your mighty works in our lives.

Not so with those who disbelieve, those who are misled by the evil one. They seem to prosper in this life without a care but what is their destiny in the next? We cry out for their souls O Lord that our testimony might be heard in their midst and be received with gladness; so that they may also know the blessings of your kingdom in this life and the mercies of your salvation now and forever.

In Jesus name, Amen.
