Join us in today’s devotion and prayer-
Read the Psalm in your favorite version or in the following KJV and then join us in praying below:
76 In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.
2 In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.
3 There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.
4 Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.
5 The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.
6 At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
7 Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
8 Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,
9 When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth.
10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.
11 Vow, and pay unto the Lord your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth. (KJV)
From the heavens you proclaim judgment and from your Kingdom you establish your mercy over all who are humbled before you and have faith in your Son Jesus.
We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the nation of Israel. Nations have risen and fallen, kings and rulers have been established and replaced. Your blessings have been over that nation and people from the beginning and you have preserved them from the attacks of their enemies who at times have surrounded them.
We pray also for America. Your blessings have also been upon our nation from the very beginning. But now so many in our land rebel against your Word and say there is no God over creation that can judge our actions. So many are calling evil good and righteousness ‘on the wrong side of history.’
Those who still respect and live according to your Word are now being singled out as judgmental bigots who unlawfully discriminate against others. The church of your Son is facing restrictions and opposition in a land that is suppose to have freedom of religion but increasingly that right is being trampled on by those who sin against nature and your Word, by those who worship another prophet and god, and by those who claim to believe in none.
Nevertheless we need your mercy in the midst of social chaos, antisemitism, persecution, war and rumors of war. We cry out for revival in this nation instead of the judgment and destruction that our enemy the Devil and his minions are supporting and planning for America.
Rise up O Lord and empower your people to face the challenges of this day and bring down your Kingdom in our midst. Let your servants go forth with signs and wonders confirming your ‘good news’ Kingdom message and let healing and miracles silence the evil one and his minions. Let the church which is divided become unified in purpose once more.
Let this nation be awakened by your Holy Spirit once again and let the captives be turned free from their addictions and those suffering from mental disorders that the evil one has used to perpetrate his plans, be healed.
Let the church and the servants of Christ once more lead the way to healing between the races and cultures of our nation while there is yet day. Let your Kingdom come, your will be done on the earth and in this nation as it is in Heaven.
In Jesus name, Amen.
