A Prayer of David

17 Hear the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.

2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.

3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.

4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.

5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.

6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.

7 Show thy marvelous loving kindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.

8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

9 From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.

10 They are enclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.

11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;

12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.

13 Arise, O Lord, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:

14 From men which are thy hand, O Lord, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.

15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.  (KJV)

Our Father,

Hide us in the shadow of your wings from our enemies and any disease or sickness that would come against us and our friends and families. Help us O Lord to rise up and bring the Good News of your Son and your love to all, even those who reject your Word and want to define for themselves what is good.

Let the hearts of the people in our land be awakened to your Son once more. Let the church rise up and demonstrate your teaching and good news with love and with supernatural power and authority; let healings, miracles, signs and wonders shake America once more and bring revival across the whole land, from the east to the west and north to the south and back again.

The enemy has divided our people against themselves though politics, different ideologies, racial discrimination, and diverse sexual identities and religions that seek to dominate America and bring down the freedoms you gave us. Rise up O Lord and push the enemy back. Let your churches and servants be united across economic and racial lines and bring change in the name of your Son Jesus.

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 the name of your Son. Let there be a new day in America; a day of hope, faith, healing, and unity under the banner of your love.

In Jesus name, Amen.
