A Psalm of David

124 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say;

2 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us:

3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

6 Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.  (KJV)

Our Father,

At the very beginning of our nation, if you had not been with us our history would have been far different. Let America now say—  if it had not been the Lord who was on our side when men rose up against us, we would have never become a leading nation. But you O Lord did bless this nation from the very beginning and by grace you sent revivals and several new awakenings our way even when we did not deserve it.

This nation has always been blessed with Christian intercessors which you rose up to pray for us through our difficult times. But now we live in a time when the believers are being discounted and vilified; A time when it is becoming illegal to display crosses and pray in public forums and on some government properties; a time when your very Words are being ignored by our political leaders and even worse–that which is named good in your scriptures is being characterized as evil and bigoted.

Even so we pray that you would remember America once more and send us a new awakening; let revival renew our cities and people and bring us back from the darkness that we are slipping into before it is too late.

Please O Lord, withhold your judgment for now and bring revival instead. Our only help can come from you alone. You made the heaven and the earth and blessed our nation in the past; let your Spirit hover over America once more.

In Jesus name, Amen.
