Prayer for God’s intervention

Troubled times now, troubled times in Bible days….
This prayer from God’s Word can be prayed appropriately now and any time we place our praise, trust, and concerns before the Lord.

Psalm 71:1-12 paraphrased into everyday English
I put my trust in You, O Lord. Help me never to be confused about that. Rescue me. Free me for You do what’s right. Stay inclined to listen to me and deliver me. Be to me a Rock where I can safely hide. Give Your command to rescue me, for You are my high ridge and fortress. Rescue me, my God, from the power of evil, from the clutches of cruel oppressors.
O Lord, my only hope is in You. From childhood I have trusted You, Lord. Yes, from the moment of my birth and even in my mother’s womb, You have tended me.
No wonder I’m always praising You. No wonder my life provides an example to many, because You have been my strength and protection. No wonder I daily declare Your praise and glory!

A prayer request for God’s help

Isaiah 33:2

O LORD God, favor us
with Your grace and mercy
as we await You
every morning.

Be to us
Your strength
and Your salvation
in times of trouble
and distress.

May God guide, protect, and empower our families, our country, the church Body of Christ, and all Christians throughout the world in Jesus’ Name.
