Psalm 83

Psalm 83

Leader: O God, do not keep silence. Do not hold your peace or be still. Even now your enemies are in tumult. Those who hate you have raised their heads.

People: They lay crafty plans against your people. They consult together against those you protect.

Leader: Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever. Let them perish in disgrace.

People: Let them know that you alone, whose name is the Lord, are the Most High over all the earth.

O God, we praise You as the only true God. Your promises never fail. You remain true to Your word from generation to generation. You never fail Your people and extend forgiveness to all who turn to You in repentance and faith. O Lord, when the heathen rage and those who despise Your holy name oppress Your people, we often feel as the Psalmist and cry out for justice. Hear our prayers, O Lord. Defend Your people! O God, we thank You for the transforming power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and we pray that many will come to Him and turn from darkness into the light. May many find salvation in Jesus alone, and may we also be prepared when He comes again. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit and give us confidence as we pray in Jesus’ Name: “Our Father. . .”
