-Praying Psalm 88

by Request ~ September 9th, 2015

A Song. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.
A Maskil[1] of Heman the Ezrahite.

88 O Lord, God of my salvation;
I cry out day and night before you.
2 Let my prayer come before you;
incline your ear to my cry!

3 For my soul is full of troubles,
and my life draws near to Sheol.
4 I am counted among those who go down to the pit;
I am a man who has no strength,
5 like one set loose among the dead,
like the slain that lie in the grave,
like those whom you remember no more,
for they are cut off from your hand.
6 You have put me in the depths of the pit,
in the regions dark and deep.
7 Your wrath lies heavy upon me,
and you overwhelm me with all your waves. Selah

8 You have caused my companions to shun me;
you have made me a horror[2] to them.
I am shut in so that I cannot escape;
9 my eye grows dim through sorrow.
Every day I call upon you, O Lord;
I spread out my hands to you.
10 Do you work wonders for the dead?
Do the departed rise up to praise you? Selah
11 Is your steadfast love declared in the grave,
or your faithfulness in Abaddon?
12 Are your wonders known in the darkness,
or your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

13 But I, O Lord, cry to you;
in the morning my prayer comes before you.
14 O Lord, why do you cast my soul away?
Why do you hide your face from me?
15 Afflicted and close to death from my youth up,
I suffer your terrors; I am helpless.[3]
16 Your wrath has swept over me;
your dreadful assaults destroy me.
17 They surround me like a flood all day long;
they close in on me together.
18 You have caused my beloved and my friend to shun me;
my companions have become darkness.[4]

Our Father,

O Lord, God of our salvation; we cry out day and night before you. Let our prayers come before you; incline your ear to our cry! For our soul is full of troubles, sadness has overtaken our countenance. 

So many of our brothers and sisters in far away places are going to their deaths; faithful ones who are called by the name of your Son. Their children see their parents killed before their very own eyes while they pray to you. Then they are dragged away unto rape and slavery in their tender years without hope. Their captors all of the time are chanting false prayers and praise supposedly to you in the process and appealing to a false book and prophet for their motivations and justifications.

This is the greatest era of Christian martyrs since the first century and it continues in your name seemingly without response. Rise up O Lord and bring down this enemy, let your signs and wonders save your little ones, let the plans of the evil one be thwarted and his minions destroyed. Their blood cries out from the dust and their children cry daily for your action and resolution.

Many are saying that we are soon to see the day when all churches will be destroyed and every Christian in the Middle East killed or expelled. Ancient communities that have survived for nearly two thousand years are being ground in the dust and those who are comfortable in the West are doing nothing or very little.

Rise O God, bring revival among those captors and bring miracles and healings that convert the armies of the enemy to the truth of your Son Jesus. Bring a halt to the terror and death they are bringing to those called by your Son; the servants of your Kingdom. The evil one would destroy them all, but reverse it O Lord and bring new converts to the truth and build up new churches and communities from among the very ones who are bringing the terror.

Let your Kingdom come in their midst and let your Word be demonstrated on the earth as it is in Heaven.

In Jesus name, Amen.
