Psalm 5:

A Psalm of David

5 Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.

2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.

3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.

5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

7 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

8 Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.

9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.

11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

12 For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favor wilt thou compass him as with a shield.  (KJV)


Our Father,

Please listen to our groaning today. We cry out for our nation and culture which is falling away. We have become an arrogant people who ignore your Word seeking our own way and delighting in wickedness and calling right -wrong instead.

Awaken our land once more with your Spirit and bring revival to a people who think they know it all but really don’t; since so many do not know You who sustains it all.  Lord there are still many who believe in Your Son Jesus in our nation but their voices are being drowned out and marginalized by the media. Hear our prayers and by your love let us overcome the evil which is spreading across our land.

Please do not ignore our pleas but let us enter into your presence once more in a new way and give all believers in America renewed strength to become witnesses among a people who are rejecting you and do not want to listen. Let the best years of our nation be ahead and not behind.

Lead us O Lord by your Holy Spirit today and show us your ways and help us to follow your straight path and not the way of our culture and world. Protect us from our enemies and teach us how to pray for them with forgiveness.

We take refuge in your presence and your joy; beyond anything that the world has to give, let Your joy and love rise up within us. We bless your name. Continue to cover us with your love as a shield and let us learn to give that love to those all around us as a living testimony of you Father and in the name of your Son Jesus.

And in His name we pray, Amen.
