A Daily Prayer based on Psalm 68:19-35 for 4/1/2015

We praise you, Lord, as our God and Savior. You are a God who saves; from you as our Sovereign Lord comes escape from death. You daily bear our burdens. We ask you to summon your power, O God, and show us your strength as you have done before. We pray that you will crush the heads of your enemies, the crowns of those who persist in walking in guilty ways. I pray that you will rebuke and humble all who oppose you that they may submit themselves to you and bring gifts to you. We pray that all the kingdoms of the earth will sing praise to you, O God, as the one who rides the ancient skies above and thunders with a mighty voice. We pray that our nation will once again hasten to stretch out our hands to you as our only God. We will praise you in the congregation, and praise you in the assembly of your people, as our singers and musicians lead us. I pray that even the princes in our land, our political leaders at every level, will join in your procession of praise and worship. We will proclaim your power, O Lord, the one whose majesty is over your people and whose power is in the skies. You are awesome, O God, in your sanctuary. You are a God who gives power and strength to your people. Praise be to you, O God! Amen. Psalm 68 19 Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Selah 20 Our God is a God who saves; from the Sovereign LORD comes escape from death. 21 Surely God will crush the heads of his enemies, the hairy crowns of those who go on in their sins. 22 The Lord says, "I will bring them from Bashan; I will bring them from the depths of the sea, 23 that you may plunge your feet in the blood of your foes, while the tongues of your dogs have their share." 24 Your procession has come into view, O God, the procession of my God and King into the sanctuary. 25 In front are the singers, after them the musicians; with them are the maidens playing tambourines. 26 Praise God in the great congregation; praise the LORD in the assembly of Israel. 27 There is the little tribe of Benjamin, leading them, there the great throng of Judah's princes, and there the princes of Zebulun and of Naphtali. 28 Summon your power, O God ; show us your strength, O God, as you have done before. 29 Because of your temple at Jerusalem kings will bring you gifts. 30 Rebuke the beast among the reeds, the herd of bulls among the calves of the nations. Humbled, may it bring bars of silver. Scatter the nations who delight in war. 31 Envoys will come from Egypt; Cush will submit herself to God. 32 Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth, sing praise to the Lord, Selah 33 to him who rides the ancient skies above, who thunders with mighty voice. 34 Proclaim the power of God, whose majesty is over Israel, whose power is in the skies. 35 You are awesome, O God, in your sanctuary; the God of Israel gives power and strength to his people. Praise be to God!

Welcome

Never before in the history of our country has America faced a moral crisis like the one before us today. The foundations of our government are crumbling right before our eyes. Our churches are abandoning God, our families are in shambles. There is only one hope for restoration - the Lord Jesus Christ. If we are to see restoration, it will come only by the grace of God's mercy. We have the assurance of Scripture that "if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us" (1 John 5:14). There is no better way to pray according to the will of God than by praying his own word back to him. These daily prayers are crafted, as much as possible, to incorporate the very words of the Scripture.
