-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.
