A Prayer of one afflicted

102 Hear my prayer, O Lord;
let my cry come to you!
2 Do not hide your face from me
in the day of my distress!
Incline your ear to me;
answer me speedily in the day when I call!

3 For my days pass away like smoke,
and my bones burn like a furnace.
4 My heart is struck down like grass and has withered;
I forget to eat my bread.
5 Because of my loud groaning
my bones cling to my flesh.
6 I am like a desert owl of the wilderness,
like an owl[1] of the waste places;
7 I lie awake;
I am like a lonely sparrow on the housetop.
8 All the day my enemies taunt me;
those who deride me use my name for a curse.
9 For I eat ashes like bread
and mingle tears with my drink,
10 because of your indignation and anger;
for you have taken me up and thrown me down.
11 My days are like an evening shadow;
I wither away like grass.

12 But you, O Lord, are enthroned forever;
you are remembered throughout all generations.
13 You will arise and have pity on Zion;
it is the time to favor her;
the appointed time has come.
14 For your servants hold her stones dear
and have pity on her dust.
15 Nations will fear the name of the Lord,
and all the kings of the earth will fear your glory.
16 For the Lord builds up Zion;
he appears in his glory;
17 he regards the prayer of the destitute
and does not despise their prayer.

18 Let this be recorded for a generation to come,
so that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord:
19 that he looked down from his holy height;
from heaven the Lord looked at the earth,
20 to hear the groans of the prisoners,
to set free those who were doomed to die,
21 that they may declare in Zion the name of the Lord,
and in Jerusalem his praise,
22 when peoples gather together,
and kingdoms, to worship the Lord.

23 He has broken my strength in midcourse;
he has shortened my days.
24 “O my God,” I say, “take me not away
in the midst of my days—
you whose years endure
throughout all generations!”

25 Of old you laid the foundation of the earth,
and the heavens are the work of your hands.
26 They will perish, but you will remain;
they will all wear out like a garment.
You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away,
27 but you are the same, and your years have no end.
28 The children of your servants shall dwell secure;
their offspring shall be established before you.  (ESV)

Our Father,

You, O Lord, are enthroned forever; you are remembered throughout all generations. 
You will soon arise and have pity on Zion; it is the time to favor her; the appointed time has come. For your servants hold her stones dear and have pity on her dust.  Your ancient people of favor cry out from her destroyed stone walls for another people have built upon Solomon’s  foundations. But you have said in your Word that the Messiah of Israel would one day rule from that very spot.

One day, and maybe soon many nations will attack the people of Israel who you raised up from the dust of persecution and made a nation once more. Your Word proclaims that you will protect them from destruction. We cry unto you for your mercy to be upon that people; let them come to the truth of their Messiah and know the salvation of your Son Jesus while there is yet day.

When all who attack this ancient people are defeated; when the Muslim nations who want to annihilate the Jewish country fail; then the nations will fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth will fear your power and glory once more.

For the Lord himself builds up Zion; and one day the Messiah will appear there in his glory and every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to your glory forever. And your law will go forth from Jerusalem; healing and prosperity will flow to the nations of the world from your Holy mountain and then the earth will find peace and finally be free indeed.

Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment.
You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but you are the same, and your years have no end. 

Then you have said in your Word that you would bring forth a new heaven and a new earth; and the promises of your Kingdom are sure for your servants and their children forever; as believers in your Son Jesus we have been adopted into your family for all eternity.

Let your Word go forth now to every nation and people; let the gospel of your Kingdom be proclaimed in every tongue; bring forth a great harvest of believers before the great day of the appearing of your Son Jesus in the clouds. Let your church rise up and fulfill its destiny while there is yet day.

In Jesus name, Amen.
