A Prayer of David.

17 Hear a just cause, O Lord; attend to my cry!
Give ear to my prayer from lips free of deceit!
2 From your presence let my vindication come!
Let your eyes behold the right!

3 You have tried my heart, you have visited me by night,
you have tested me, and you will find nothing;
I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.
4 With regard to the works of man, by the word of your lips
I have avoided the ways of the violent.
5 My steps have held fast to your paths;
my feet have not slipped.

6 I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God;
incline your ear to me; hear my words.
7 Wondrously show[1] your steadfast love,
O Savior of those who seek refuge
from their adversaries at your right hand.

8 Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings,
9 from the wicked who do me violence,
my deadly enemies who surround me.

10 They close their hearts to pity;
with their mouths they speak arrogantly.
11 They have now surrounded our steps;
they set their eyes to cast us to the ground.
12 He is like a lion eager to tear,
as a young lion lurking in ambush.

13 Arise, O Lord! Confront him, subdue him!
Deliver my soul from the wicked by your sword,
14 from men by your hand, O Lord,
from men of the world whose portion is in this life.[2]
You fill their womb with treasure;[3]
they are satisfied with children,
and they leave their abundance to their infants.

15 As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness;
when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness.  (ESV)

Our Father,

Hide us in the shadow of your wings from our enemies and those who would come against us and our friends and families. We now live in a land which no longer respects your word and seeks to overthrow the very principles of your creation and your Kingdom.

Nevertheless, help us O Lord to rise up and bring your Gospel and your love to a culture that is rejecting it. Let us be gracious in the face of those who come against us but let us also be firm in what we know to be the truth in the face of those who say there is no such thing and want to define for themselves what is good.

The hearts of the people in our land have gone cold and everyone seeks his own way rebelling against you and your word. Let us rise up and preach your good news and love with supernatural power authority and effectiveness once more along with confirming gifts and miracles to shake America and bring a new awakening and revival to our neighborhoods, our cities, and finally across the whole land.

The enemy has divided our people against themselves. The different races are forming gangs and fighting each other to control neighborhoods. They are dying in the streets and the people seek grievances against one another and against the authorities. Rise up O Lord and push the enemy back. Let your churches and servants be united across racial lines and bring change.

Let your Spirit go before us and change the spiritual environment of evil that surrounds us and enslaves the people we need to reach in your name and the name of your Son. Let there be a new day in America. 

In Jesus name, Amen.
