Psalm 83 :: New King James Version (NKJV)
Prayer to Frustrate Conspiracy Against Israel
A Song. A Psalm of Asaph. 1 Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! 2For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head. 3They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. 4They have said, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more."
5For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You: 6The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites; 7Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8Assyria also has joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot.Selah
9Deal with them as with Midian, As with Sisera, As with Jabin at the Brook Kishon, 10Who perished at En Dor, Who became as refuse on the earth. 11Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb, Yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna, 12Who said, "Let us take for ourselves The pastures of God for a possession."
13O my God, make them like the whirling dust, Like the chaff before the wind! 14As the fire burns the woods, And as the flame sets the mountains on fire, 15So pursue them with Your tempest, And frighten them with Your storm. 16Fill their faces with shame, That they may seek Your name, O LORD. 17Let them be confounded and dismayed forever; Yes, let them be put to shame and perish, 18That they may know that You, whose name alone is the LORD, Are the Most High over all the earth.
Thanks for the corporate opportunity.
At 10am this morning a prayer request was received from a church. Cathy Mitchell, who attends Spring Hills, called in to the church secretary. Her husband, Tony, is an Air Force Commander in Afghanistan. She received an urgent email from him this morning.
It said, "We need Christians to pray, pray, pray. We're in a Blood Bath here!"
Please pray for God's protection of our troops and HIS wisdom for their commanders. Pass this on to as many as you think will respond.
Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. I ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our ground troops in Afghanistan.
Beyond this OT prayer, though, I pray in Christ for the repentance and salvation of all, on both sides. The Lord is willing that none should perish.
Also, thanks for the heads-up on the plight of our troops in Afghanistan. Will bear them in prayer.
Lord, please help your people. Help them to live Godly lives in all decency. Help us to proclaim Your Gospel of true freedom throughout the land.
