Prayer for Joplin Tornado Victims and others in Midwest

This is a Prayer taken from Psalms 57, which The LORD has called me to pray…When we lift up our hearts to prayers and praise during times when circumstances seem difficult, The LORD honors that.

Revised – Prayer

Psalm 57

To the Chief Musician; [set to the tune of] “Do Not Destroy.” A record of memorable thoughts of David when he fled from Saul in the cave.

1BE MERCIFUL and gracious to us, O God, be merciful and gracious to us, for our soul takes refuge and finds shelter and confidence in You; yes, in the shadow of Your wings will WE take refuge and be confident until calamities and destructive storms are passed.

2 We will cry to God Most High, Who performs on our behalf and rewards us [Who brings to pass His purposes for us and surely completes them]!

3He will send from heaven and save us from the slanders and reproaches of him who would trample us down or swallow us up, and He will put him to shame. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! God will send forth His mercy and loving-kindness and His truth and faithfulness.

4 Our life is among lions; WE must lie among those who are aflame–the sons of men whose teeth are spears and arrows, their tongues sharp swords.

5Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let Your glory be over all the earth!

6They set a net for our steps; our very life was bowed down. They dug a pit in our way; into the midst of it they themselves have fallen. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

7 Our heart is fixed, O God, our heart is steadfast and confident! WE will sing and make melody.

8Awake, our glory (our inner self); awake, harp and lyre! WE will awake right early [WE will awaken the dawn]!

9 WE will praise and give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; WE will sing praises to You among the nations.

10For Your mercy and loving-kindness are great, reaching to the heavens, and Your truth and faithfulness to the clouds.

11Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let Your glory be over all the earth.

We lift up this prayer before You, O Father God, that we come united and glorify You above all else.  Please hear our prayer and respond to our heart’s cry.  We need You now when times are dark.  Please spare Your Judgement from us.  If there is any one righteous person in the land please spare the land.  You died for us and though some of us might be ready most of us are not so we just call up0n You most High and we lift up Your name to be exalted.  Help us to be still and know You are God.  Be merciful to us Father God, and hear our prayers.  Hear us from heaven, and heal our land.

I pray this in Jesus mighty name I pray.

Amen.
