A prayer for strength from Psalm 80

Oh, Shepherd of Your people, lead us in Your flock. Oh, God enthroned on cherubim, stir Your strength and save us. Restore us, oh, God and shine on us with Your glory. Return to us, oh, LORD of Hosts. Regard us as the vine You set. With Your right hand, You planted us and made strong Your branch – Your Son. Let Your hand again be on the Son of Man, Whom You have made strong in us. Then we shall not depart from You. Give us life, and we shall remain with You. Revive us to call on Your Name. Restore us, oh LORD – God of the armies of Heaven, and in Your shine, we shall be saved.
