Prayer for national deliverance
To the chief Musician Ps. 80upon Shushan-eduth, Michtam of David, to teach; 2 Sam. 8:3;1 Chr. 18:3when he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, when Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt twelve thousand.
O God, Ps. 44:9thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us,
Thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.
Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it:
2 Chr. 7:14Heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.
Ps. 71:20Thou hast shewed thy people hard things:
Jer. 25:15Thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.
Ps. 20:5Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee,
That it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.
Ps. 108:6That thy beloved may be delivered;
Save with thy right hand, and hear me.
God hath Ps. 89:35spoken in his holiness;
I will rejoice, I will Josh. 1:6divide Gen. 12:6Shechem,
And mete out Josh. 13:27the valley of Succoth.
Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine;
Deut. 33:17Ephraim also is the strength of mine head;
Gen. 49:10Judah is my lawgiver;
Moab is my washpot;
Over Edom will I cast out my shoe:
2 Sam. 8:1Philistia, triumph thou because of me.
Who will bring me into the strong city?
Who will lead me into Edom?
Wilt not thou, O God, which Ps. 108:11hadst cast us off?
And thou, O God, which didst Josh. 7:12not go out with our armies?
Give us help from trouble:
For vain is the help of man.
Through God Num. 24:18we shall do valiantly:
For he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
The prayer of a troubled heart
