Meditation on Psalm 72
LORD, allow those you ordain to rule be people who hunger and thirst for righteousness. Allow their judgments to be just.
Grant that they will protect the rights of the poor and keep them from being oppressed. Grant a great prosperity of revival, renewal, reformation, and restoration come pouring out of heaven and filling the earth.
May those who seek to oppress the weak, terrorize the innocent and exploit the needy have their plans crushed. Come to the defense of the most helpless and hopeless. Protect the lives of the unborn and give hope to their mothers. Lord, help us for you to intervene in ways we would never dream.
LORD, come and manifest your glory and goodness before all nations in your gospel of grace. Fill the earth with a true faith and love. Come now and move the nations once more.
LORD, disciple the nations. May the rulers of the earth be converted to the truth and may the false prophet Mohammed lose followers in every nation. Grant a turning to YOU, LORD JESUS as the true KING and Messiah!
Grant us a love for the poor and needy. Help us to have pity on the weak and helpless. Provide us a passion for saving the lives of the unborn. Use us to be your voice, hands, and feet to bring your love and righteousness into our culture and times.
LORD, fill the earth with a revelation of your great love and compassion. Let all the nations see your wisdom and sacrificial concern for them. Open the eyes of heart that we may see YOU as YOU are and be filled with wonder and worship in what we behold.
Lord, revive, renew, restore, and reform us. Do wondrous things that we cannot imagine. Take out the hearts of stone that resist you and are unfeeling, and give us sensitive hearts of flesh that seek to please you in all we do. Lord give us such tender hearts.
Lord have mercy, Messiah have mercy, LORD have mercy. Amen
