Summary: Prayer for help each day the godly cease to rise in the glory of Jesus for the glory of the king and the nations and those in persecution must reflect on the new Jerusalem, their redemption and salvation in the grace of the faith of Jesus Christ.
Prayer For The Good Life

“Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men” (Psalms 12:1, King James Version [David craveth help of God]).
Greetings in the Holy Name Of Jesus,
My brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, living in a world of sin, “Where is the happy medium?” How long will you not do unto others as you do unto yourselves or love one another as Jesus loves you? How long will you not be your brother's keeper? How long will you deny the saving grace of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus? How long will you not love our LORD, God Almighty?
David to the chief musician upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David (12: 2-4, KJV) speaks, “They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak. The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: Who have said, with our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?”[David craveth help of God].
Howbeit, “13 percent of the United States of America's (USA) population---African-American's suffer a 50 percent homicide rate of which 90 percent of the homicides are committed by African-Americans on African-Americans known to us as black-on-black crimes” (Meet The Press, 2014)? LORD, save us from a sinful nation that practices hate---our own people! Howbeit, “100 African-Americans are killed by white police each year” (Meet The Press, 2014)?
LORD, save us from the white sinful nation that practices hate---of black people! It is not too far-fetched to think in the month of August in this year 2014, “How many black people have the white man killed this year, 2014, so far?” If, the number is 70 black people killed so far in the month of August by white police, then, that means the average of 100 black people killed each year, left 30 more black people to die at the hands of white police this year? LORD, how can we protect ourselves and our children? LORD, what about our own people killing at a rate of 50 percent, “How many have they killed this year, 2014, so far? If, the percentage of 50 percent of African-Americans killed by 90 percent of African-Americans is at 25 percent, then, that means the 50 percent homicides, left 25 more percent of black people to die at the hands of 90 percent of their own black people?
David in Psalms (12: 5-6, KJV) said, “For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times” [David craveth help of God]. There was an unarmed teen in a town named Ferguson, Missouri, which was incorporated 100 years ago. Yet, in the town of Ferguson the white men LORD as gods over the oppressed poor of which 63 percent are African-Americans but 93 percent of the arrests made in that town are of African-Americans---arrests made by a police force of 50 white police and only 3 black police, initially thought to be only 1 black policeman on the police force in that town so much so until when the riots that began over the killing of the unarmed teen slated to go to college in less than a week's time occurred the powers that be on a state level and national level decided to send in the highway patrol staying the perceived persecution that the local level police would inflict upon the neighbors that they oppress daily with false arrests and now the killing of the golden child---the child that made it out---the child that was accepted into college but the child did not get to make it out for he was killed by a police; his potential was snuffed out by the gun of a quiet policeman---the police of the year, supposedly mild-mannered with contained emotions nevertheless this same mild-mannered policeman almost emptied his weapon upon the golden child. Yes, the golden child is dead---a mother's child is dead---another mother's child is gone.
Are Christian's under attack, here in the USA? Why do white men, in particular in Ferguson, Missouri, the white policeman, behaving as a LORD over the oppressed 63 percent African-Americans, laying down Jim Crow and Jane Crow interpretations of the local, state and federal laws, imputing false charges of crimes to their names (their families' names), chaining them, shackling them as slaves of the state without money to properly defend themselves, destroying every chance for their family's liberty to fulfill their dreams for a good life? If the people in Ferguson, Missouri believe in God Almighty, Jesus and the Holy Ghost spirit then why are the white men as police behaving as their LORD---their God and behaving as their Lord---their Savior, Jesus as they interact and deal with them each day, treating them as slaves even before they bring a bond down on their heads imputing false charges of crimes to their person, in fact, making them a slave of the state under their power and authority, hopefully, forever, as the attrition rate kicks in---the revolving door of once you get caught they never really want to let you go; they keep trying to get you back and the first-timers but the gospel of Jesus said whomever Jesus freed, is free, indeed? Is their a place in this community for the voice of reason when obviously the image of white men still needing to LORD over black people (African-Americans) prevails?
