-Praying Psalm 52

by Request ~ August 2nd, 2015
A Maskil[1] of David, on Doeg, the Edomite

52 Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man?
The steadfast love of God endures all the day.
2 Your tongue plots destruction,
like a sharp razor, you worker of deceit.
3 You love evil more than good,
and lying more than speaking what is right. Selah
4 You love all words that devour,
O deceitful tongue.

5 But God will break you down forever;
he will snatch and tear you from your tent;
he will uproot you from the land of the living. Selah
6 The righteous shall see and fear,
and shall laugh at him, saying,
7 “See the man who would not make
God his refuge,
but trusted in the abundance of his riches
and sought refuge in his own destruction!”[2]

8 But I am like a green olive tree
in the house of God.
I trust in the steadfast love of God
forever and ever.
9 I will thank you forever,
because you have done it.
I will wait for your name, for it is good,
in the presence of the godly.  (ESV)

Footnotes:

1. Probably a musical or liturgical term

2. Or in his work of destruction


Our Father,

Thanks for making us like a green olive tree in the Kingdom of God. We trust in your steadfast love and live in your presence now and forever. Through faith in Your Son Jesus we have become fruitful in this life with hope in the life to come. We are secure in the knowledge that through your Holy Spirit we are producing lasting treasures in Heaven. We rejoice now and we will sing songs of everlasting praise in your Kingdom.

Not so those who do not believe, the scoffers who make fun of your people and persecute your church. They wonder to and fro trying to find a truth to believe in, a purpose to consume their lives, and settle for the honor and riches of this world which will pass away. When they go on to the next they will take nothing with them and then they will see their folly. They will not rejoice and they will not be singing praises in the life to come.

While there is yet day, inspire us O Lord to reach out to such as these who think they know something but really are ignorant of the truth. Let your Holy Spirit help us to bring many to a knowledge of your Son and your loving plan for all humanity.

Let us be humble examples of your love and teach us to pray for those who oppose us. Strengthen us against the enemy that comes to destroy rather than build up, protect us from the evil one and his minions.

Let our testimonies go forth in our neighborhoods, among our family and friends and let us transform entire cities in the name of your Son. Let this nation see revival once more. Let a new generation experience your healings and miracles even those who say there are no such things. Surprise them and save many.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 51

by Request ~ August 1st, 2015
A Psalm of David

51 Have mercy on me,[1] O God,
according to your steadfast love;
according to your abundant mercy
blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
and cleanse me from my sin!

3 For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is ever before me.
4 Against you, you only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in your sight,
so that you may be justified in your words
and blameless in your judgment.
5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
and in sin did my mother conceive me.
6 Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being,
and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.

7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Let me hear joy and gladness;
let the bones that you have broken rejoice.
9 Hide your face from my sins,
and blot out all my iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right[2] spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from your presence,
and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and uphold me with a willing spirit.

13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
and sinners will return to you.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God,
O God of my salvation,
and my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness.
15 O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth will declare your praise.
16 For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;
you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

18 Do good to Zion in your good pleasure;
build up the walls of Jerusalem;
19 then will you delight in right sacrifices,
in burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings;
then bulls will be offered on your altar.  (ESV)

Footnotes:

1. Or Be gracious to me

2. Or steadfast


Our Father,

You have said in your Word that you will not despise a broken and contrite heart, if we come before you and confess our sins, you are faithful and just to forgive and purify us from all unrighteousness.

The enemy keeps on placing our failures before us trying to convince us that we have no right to ask for your help. Besides he tells us that we haven’t really done anything to be ashamed of and our missteps are less than most and need no correction.

But your Holy Spirit calls up our sins before us and convicts us to seek your loving forgiveness and correction. He calls us into the light out of the darkness that the enemy claims is nothing more than human nature. But you have given us another nature in the name of your Son Jesus.

In your Word you have said that when we sin we have an Advocate that stands before your throne speaking in our defense –your very own Son Jesus Christ the righteous one. He is the atonement for our failures the ever present sacrifice for our sins today and forever. It is through faith in his righteousness and not our own that we have been adopted into your family and come before you now asking for your forgiveness and help.

Cleanse us now from our unrighteousness, let us feel your closeness once more, let us sing songs of praise and joy. Hide your face from our sins, and blot out all our iniquities. Create in us a clean heart, Our Father, and renew a right spirit within us.

Cast us not away from your presence, like the enemy wants, but let your Holy Spirit continue to dwell within us and write the good news of your love upon our hearts. Restore to us the joy of our salvation, and help us to have a willing and contrite spirit.

Then we will be able to teach others your ways and demonstrate your love to those living in darkness. Our lips will continue to praise your name and our voices will sing songs of everlasting joy.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 50

by Request ~ July 31st, 2015
A Psalm of Asaph.

50 The Mighty One, God the Lord,
speaks and summons the earth
from the rising of the sun to its setting.
2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty,
God shines forth.

3 Our God comes; he does not keep silence;[1]
before him is a devouring fire,
around him a mighty tempest.
4 He calls to the heavens above
and to the earth, that he may judge his people:
5 “Gather to me my faithful ones,
who made a covenant with me by sacrifice!”
6 The heavens declare his righteousness,
for God himself is judge! Selah

7 “Hear, O my people, and I will speak;
O Israel, I will testify against you.
I am God, your God.
8 Not for your sacrifices do I rebuke you;
your burnt offerings are continually before me.
9 I will not accept a bull from your house
or goats from your folds.
10 For every beast of the forest is mine,
the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I know all the birds of the hills,
and all that moves in the field is mine.

12 “If I were hungry, I would not tell you,
for the world and its fullness are mine.
13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls
or drink the blood of goats?
14 Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving,[2]
and perform your vows to the Most High,
15 and call upon me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”

16 But to the wicked God says:
“What right have you to recite my statutes
or take my covenant on your lips?
17 For you hate discipline,
and you cast my words behind you.
18 If you see a thief, you are pleased with him,
and you keep company with adulterers.

19 “You give your mouth free rein for evil,
and your tongue frames deceit.
20 You sit and speak against your brother;
you slander your own mother’s son.
21 These things you have done, and I have been silent;
you thought that I[3] was one like yourself.
But now I rebuke you and lay the charge before you.

22 “Mark this, then, you who forget God,
lest I tear you apart, and there be none to deliver!
23 The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me;
to one who orders his way rightly
I will show the salvation of God!”  (ESV)

Footnotes:

1.  Or May our God come, and not keep silence

2.  Or Make thanksgiving your sacrifice to God

3.  Or that the I am


Our Father,

The heavens declare your righteousness for you are the judge over all. The world in its fullness is all yours and you need nothing. You speak forth a word and all nature trembles. You are clothed in the firmament of the heavens and the earth is but a small planet in your Creation.

Yet you pay attention to humankind, you know our every deed both good and evil. Your Word comes forth both as Grace and judgment. Everyone one both great and small is measured by their faith in you and belief in your Son.

Many say that they will pacify God by giving money to a temple or church and appease your righteous nature by trying to do more good than evil. But you have declared in your Word that the beginning of wisdom is faith and the foundation of your Kingdom is love.

By your love you have sent your Son into the world to save it, and his teachings to show the way. And the Good News of your Kingdom will be spread in every nation, out of every people will come the testimony of your Son. From every land his followers will sing songs of joy at his coming.

We cannot do anything that lasts forever, but you have given us your Spirit and by his counsel we have stored up everlasting treasures. It is by your help that we do works of righteousness, on our own our efforts are nothing but filthy rags.  But you have promised that every believer in your Son Jesus will be clothed in glory for the wedding feast of the King.

Rise up O God and bring down a glimpse of your Kingdom among your servants for the church of your Son is now being dragged in the dirt. Let a new day shine forth from the believers, let your Kingdom works be demonstrated in their midst. Let your Word bring joy to every nation, your love be demonstrated all around the earth. Let your healing and miracles free the children in every land from the dead religions they serve and from the demanding priests and imams they follow. 

Let the light of your Son shine forth into the darkness and cover the whole earth. May the name of your Son be praised and worshiped in every land before that coming great day when all will stand before your throne.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 49

by Request ~ July 30th, 2015
A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.

49 Hear this, all peoples!
Give ear, all inhabitants of the world,
2 both low and high,
rich and poor together!
3 My mouth shall speak wisdom;
the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.
4 I will incline my ear to a proverb;
I will solve my riddle to the music of the lyre.

5 Why should I fear in times of trouble,
when the iniquity of those who cheat me surrounds me,
6 those who trust in their wealth
and boast of the abundance of their riches?
7 Truly no man can ransom another,
or give to God the price of his life,
8 for the ransom of their life is costly
and can never suffice,
9 that he should live on forever
and never see the pit.

10 For he sees that even the wise die;
the fool and the stupid alike must perish
and leave their wealth to others.
11 Their graves are their homes forever,[1]
their dwelling places to all generations,
though they called lands by their own names.
12 Man in his pomp will not remain;
he is like the beasts that perish.

13 This is the path of those who have foolish confidence;
yet after them people approve of their boasts.[2] Selah
14 Like sheep they are appointed for Sheol;
death shall be their shepherd,
and the upright shall rule over them in the morning.
Their form shall be consumed in Sheol, with no place to dwell.
15 But God will ransom my soul from the power of Sheol,
for he will receive me. Selah

16 Be not afraid when a man becomes rich,
when the glory of his house increases.
17 For when he dies he will carry nothing away;
his glory will not go down after him.
18 For though, while he lives, he counts himself blessed
—and though you get praise when you do well for yourself—
19 his soul will go to the generation of his fathers,
who will never again see light.
20 Man in his pomp yet without understanding is like the beasts that perish. (ESV)

Footnotes:

1. Septuagint, Syriac, Targum; Hebrew Their inward thought was that their homes were forever

2. Or and of those after them who approve of their boasts


Our Father,

It is a popular in our culture to say that no one can escape death and taxes. Well taxes maybe. In truth both rich and poor find a grave or a jar in the end and their possessions go to someone else. The wise and the stupid will all one day come before your throne.

The fool says ‘there is no god’ and lives a life in darkness disregarding your Word and truth. Sometimes they seem to have it all and scoffers might even gain the whole world and seem to suffer no penalty for their abuse of others. But in truth they are ever searching for direction and purpose only to find the ground without satisfaction.

Not so those who believe in your Son Jesus. Your mercy and light extends to such as these and your Spirit patiently attends and counsels them daily. Those of us who bare the name of your Son are not alone in this life or in the life to come. The ground does not overcome us nor does the evil one have a say over our destiny.

Father, you sent your Son into the world not to condemn but to save and the price of that redemption was great. And all the people who ever lived both great and small, rich or poor will will one day bow down at the mention of his name. Those who have faith in Him shall rejoice and his rule will one day be extended over every nation.

Maybe today is not that day but you are still on the throne and all of nature responds to your word. Those of us who follow your Son rejoice that you are in control. Life may be complicated and we may face disaster and even rejection by those close to us but we are never abandoned and alone. For you are always there with us in the midst of it all , your Spirit giving us comfort and direction. Your light is always shining through the darkness.

We know that you have plans for us that extend beyond the ground and time itself. You have ransomed us through your Son and we have been adopted into your family. Thanks Father, we praise you today and forever.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 48

by Request ~ July 29th, 2015
A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.

48 Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised
in the city of our God!
His holy mountain, 2 beautiful in elevation,
is the joy of all the earth,
Mount Zion, in the far north,
the city of the great King.
3 Within her citadels God
has made himself known as a fortress.

4 For behold, the kings assembled;
they came on together.
5 As soon as they saw it, they were astounded;
they were in panic; they took to flight.
6 Trembling took hold of them there,
anguish as of a woman in labor.
7 By the east wind you shattered
the ships of Tarshish.
8 As we have heard, so have we seen
in the city of the Lord of hosts,
in the city of our God,
which God will establish forever. Selah

9 We have thought on your steadfast love, O God,
in the midst of your temple.
10 As your name, O God,
so your praise reaches to the ends of the earth.
Your right hand is filled with righteousness.
11 Let Mount Zion be glad!
Let the daughters of Judah rejoice
because of your judgments!

12 Walk about Zion, go around her,
number her towers,
13 consider well her ramparts,
go through her citadels,
that you may tell the next generation
14 that this is God,
our God forever and ever.
He will guide us forever.[1] (ESV)

Footnotes:

1.  Septuagint; another reading is (compare Jerome, Syriac) He will guide us beyond death


Our Father,

Your Kingdom and throne is in Heaven but your rule is demonstrated in nature and in history.

     Let your Kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

The prophets have proclaimed that the time is coming when you will establish your Kingdom on the earth and your Son will rule over every nation and people.

     Let your Kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

In that day there will be no sickness, hunger, or wars and justice will prevail. Your Word will come forth from your Son out of Jerusalem, the City of God shining on a hill. Healing will come forth from her rivers and songs of praise and worship will be sung in every city and all the children everywhere shall rejoice.

     Let your Kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

For the enemy will be subdued, the old evil snake which caused the Fall will be chained and his minions exiled. Peace and justice, goodness and mercy will prevail and all the children will be safe in the millennium of your Son.

     Let your Kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

The believers will come in the clouds with the Savior, the saints of old will be brought forth from their graves and all will rejoice to see the City of God.

     Let your Kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

Before that great day, the Gospel of your Kingdom will be taught in every nation, every people shall hear about the everlasting salvation through your Son Jesus.

     Let your Kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

Before that great day, your church will rise up and fulfill it’s destiny, the believers will unite and your Kingdom will be demonstrated in their midst.

     Let your Kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

Rise up O God and bring forth your Kingdom in our midst, let your Spirit hover over your church. Let it begin in this generation, let the church rise up from the dust and the taunts to become the spotless bride and fulfill it’s destiny.

     Let your Kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

Let the divisions cease and let the enemy be overcome. Let your Word with healings and miracles go forth from your servants to all of the world.

     Let your Kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 47

by Request ~ July 28th, 2015
A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.

47 Clap your hands, all peoples!
Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
2 For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared,
a great king over all the earth.
3 He subdued peoples under us,
and nations under our feet. 4 He chose our heritage for us,
the pride of Jacob whom he loves. Selah

5 God has gone up with a shout,
the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.
6 Sing praises to God, sing praises!
Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
7 For God is the King of all the earth;
sing praises with a psalm![1]

8 God reigns over the nations;
God sits on his holy throne.
9 The princes of the peoples gather
as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
he is highly exalted!  (ESV)

Footnotes:

1. Hebrew maskil


Our Father,

We clap our hands and rejoice, we sing songs of everlasting joy. For you are on the throne and history is in the palms of your hands.

Nations rise and fall at your command. Cultures come and civilizations die but your Word is still true and your Kingdom is coming to the earth. In that day your rule will be established in every nation.

Your servants are sent forth with the Good News of your Son Jesus and your Word is instilled within the hearts of believers all around the World. Let your Kingdom be demonstrated in our midst, your rule be established among your people. Let the scoffers try to explain away your healings and miracles, let them be jealous of the changed lives and the hope and joy among those called by the name of your Son.

Some who say that they are ‘wise’ claim that your Word is on the ‘wrong side of history,’ that our faith is useless, and our devotion to you is dangerous and needs to be eliminated. Rise up O God with healing in your wings and let your church arise from the ashes of our culture and fulfill its destiny. Let there be a revival among your people that cannot be denied, a power that cannot be overthrown by the enemy.

Let your Word be preach in every nation among all the peoples of the earth. Let your Kingdom come and let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 46

by Request ~ July 27th, 2015
Of the Sons of Korah. According to Alamoth.[1] A Song.

46 God is our refuge and strength,
a very present[2] help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
6 The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
he utters his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

8 Come, behold the works of the Lord,
how he has brought desolations on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the chariots with fire.
10 “Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah  (ESV)

Footnotes:

1. Probably a musical or liturgical term

2. Or well proved


Our Father,

In our quite times in prayer we feel your presence and know that you are God, your Holy Spirit dwells within us and stills our fears and gives us confidence in the face of disaster. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress, our refuge and our strength.

Even when the ‘big one’ comes and the earth falls away we know that you are in control and have a plan for us. When the winds blow and bring destruction you are still on the throne and we are part of your family through faith in Jesus Christ. When the waves roar over the walls your word is still true and preserved within our hearts.

You will be exalted in all creation, the Word of your Kingdom will go forth to every land and your Son will be praise in every nation and among every people. The nations may rage, the kingdoms may totter and the inhabitants of the earth may hide in fear as the earth melts. 

But you dwell among your people and your Kingdom is a reality in our midst and your Son is coming with the hosts of Heaven and we shall all be caught up to meet him in the clouds. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Praise your name and the name of your Son forever.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 45

by Request ~ July 26th, 2015
A Maskil[1] of the Sons of Korah

45 My heart overflows with a pleasing theme;
I address my verses to the king;
my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe.

2 You are the most handsome of the sons of men;
grace is poured upon your lips;
therefore God has blessed you forever.
3 Gird your sword on your thigh, O mighty one,
in your splendor and majesty!

4 In your majesty ride out victoriously
for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
let your right hand teach you awesome deeds!
5 Your arrows are sharp
in the heart of the king’s enemies;
the peoples fall under you.

6 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.
The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness;
7 you have loved righteousness and hated wickedness.
Therefore God, your God, has anointed you
with the oil of gladness beyond your companions;
8 your robes are all fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia.
From ivory palaces stringed instruments make you glad;
9 daughters of kings are among your ladies of honor;
at your right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir.

10 Hear, O daughter, and consider, and incline your ear:
forget your people and your father’s house,
11 and the king will desire your beauty.
Since he is your lord, bow to him.
12 The people[2] of Tyre will seek your favor with gifts,
the richest of the people.[3]

13 All glorious is the princess in her chamber, with robes interwoven with gold.
14 In many-colored robes she is led to the king,
with her virgin companions following behind her.
15 With joy and gladness they are led along
as they enter the palace of the king.

16 In place of your fathers shall be your sons;
you will make them princes in all the earth.
17 I will cause your name to be remembered in all generations;
therefore nations will praise you forever and ever.  (ESV)

Footnotes:

1. Probably a musical or liturgical term

2. Hebrew daughter

3.  Or The daughter of Tyre is here with gifts, the richest of people seek your favor


Our Father,

You have declared that the divine throne of your Son Jesus Christ will last forever and his name will be remembered in all generations and all nations will praise him forever and ever. His scepter is righteousness and truth, and his ultimate victory is assured at the end of time. He will come in the clouds and everyone will see him.

     We praise His name and look for his coming.

All who believe in Him from every generation will be his companions.

     We praise His name and look for his coming.

Those believers living on the earth will be caught up to meet him in the air.

     We praise His name and look for his coming.

He will establish His rule over all the inhabitants of the earth.

     We praise His name and look for his coming.

There will be no more sickness, hunger, or war.

     We praise His name and look for his coming.

His glorious bride will one day come forth out of her chamber clothed in beauty with joy and gladness.

     We praise His name and look for his coming.

You have declared in your Word that the church is His bride.

     We praise His name and look for his coming.

We come before you as humble representative of His church which looks tattered, divided, and torn in this generation. Rise up O Lord and make your church ready for that great day.

     We praise His name and look for his coming.

Let the church rise up and see its finest hour. Let your Kingdom come down in our midst and demonstrate your Word and light to a world in darkness and confusion.

     We praise His name and look for his coming.

Let the Good News of His Kingdom be preached in every country. Let there be a great harvest from every nation and people. And then Your Word says that He shall come.

      We praise His name and look for his coming.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

-Praying Psalm 44

by Request ~ July 25th, 2015
A Maskil[1] of the Sons of Korah.

44 O God, we have heard with our ears,
our fathers have told us,
what deeds you performed in their days,
in the days of old:
2 you with your own hand drove out the nations,
but them you planted;
you afflicted the peoples,
but them you set free;
3 for not by their own sword did they win the land,
nor did their own arm save them,
but your right hand and your arm,
and the light of your face,
for you delighted in them.

4 You are my King, O God;
ordain salvation for Jacob!
5 Through you we push down our foes;
through your name we tread down those who rise up against us.
6 For not in my bow do I trust,
nor can my sword save me.
7 But you have saved us from our foes
and have put to shame those who hate us.
8 In God we have boasted continually,
and we will give thanks to your name forever. Selah

9 But you have rejected us and disgraced us
and have not gone out with our armies.
10 You have made us turn back from the foe,
and those who hate us have gotten spoil.
11 You have made us like sheep for slaughter
and have scattered us among the nations.
12 You have sold your people for a trifle,
demanding no high price for them.
13 You have made us the taunt of our neighbors,
the derision and scorn of those around us.
14 You have made us a byword among the nations,
a laughingstock[2] among the peoples.
15 All day long my disgrace is before me,
and shame has covered my face
16 at the sound of the taunter and reviler,
at the sight of the enemy and the avenger.

17 All this has come upon us,
though we have not forgotten you,
and we have not been false to your covenant.
18 Our heart has not turned back,
nor have our steps departed from your way;
19 yet you have broken us in the place of jackals
and covered us with the shadow of death.
20 If we had forgotten the name of our God
or spread out our hands to a foreign god,
21 would not God discover this?
For he knows the secrets of the heart.
22 Yet for your sake we are killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.

23 Awake! Why are you sleeping, O Lord?
Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever!
24 Why do you hide your face?
Why do you forget our affliction and oppression?
25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust;
our belly clings to the ground.
26 Rise up; come to our help!
Redeem us for the sake of your steadfast love!  (ESV)

Our Father,

We have read the stories of your salvation and great deeds among the nations in the past. Our own history is filled with accounts of how you were at the foundation of our nation guiding events and bringing forth leaders and the people rejoiced and praised your name.

Now our land is falling away and many are saying that the stories of old are but ancient legends and the miracles of our beginning are nothing but coincidences. The vision that brought forth our nation nothing but vain delusions of immoral white men. Now your words are being ridiculed and your teaching is called passé by some who say that believers in you are ‘on the wrong side of history.’ We have become a ‘byword’ among the so-called progressives in our nation, a laughingstock among the academics who consider themselves to be ‘wise’ and knowledgeable.

But the followers of your Son Jesus continue to praise your name and lift up your teaching before a scoffing nation. Your Holy Spirit continues to dwell in our  midst and bring joy and confidence into our lives. We continue to proclaim that you are the author of history, the creator of all things including the very laws that science observes and records as ‘the truth.’

We live in a world where thousands that bare the name of your Son are being killed ‘like sheep for slaughter and have scattered among the nations’ by those who claim to know you by another name and follow a false account of your teaching. But nevertheless, thousands continue to come to Christ out of the darkness and sing songs of joy for finding the truth. There is world revival and world slaughter at the same time.

Do not forget us in this land O Lord. Bring forth your revival once more among our people. Let the healing and miracles of your Kingdom come down in our midst and transform our families, our neighborhoods, our cities and nation. Let the unbelievers be in the minority once more and let them be afraid to open their mouths as they were in former years. Let the plans of the enemy be turned back once more.

Rise up; come to our help! Redeem us for the sake of your steadfast love! Let your Word be proclaimed in power across this land and let the truth be confirmed by works and miracles which can not be explained away. Bring revival and light to a nation falling into darkness and living water to a thirsty people seeking the truth. Let there be new stories of your salvation and wonderful deeds in this generation.

In Jesus name,  Amen.
