praying today's psalm: psa 72


Endow the king with your justice, O God,
The royal son with your righteousness.
He will rule from sea to sea
And from the River to the ends of the earth.
The desert tribes will bow before him
And his enemies will lick the dust.
The kings of Tarshish and of distant shores
Will bring tribute to him;
The kings of Sheba and Seba
Will present him gifts.
All kings will bow down to him
And all nations will serve him.
For he will deliver the needy who cry out,
The afflicted who have no one to help.
He will take pity on the weak and the needy
And save the needy from death.
He will rescue them from oppression and violence,
For precious is their blood in his sight.

(Psa 72:1, 8-14, NIV)

Father, Jesus, your beloved son, occupies this throne now, and his eye is to the nations. May your kingdom come, and may your will be done. May your Gospel go forward and bear the fruit of repentance. As we become your servants, may we find freedom. For the suffering, may your kingdom come. For the poor, may your kingdom come. For the oppressed, may your kingdom come. For your name’s sake, make your love for us known. Amen and Amen
