Psalm for Prayer - December 14, 2015

Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19

To the choirmaster: according to Lilies. A Testimony. Of Asaph, a Psalm.

[1] Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel,
  you who lead Joseph like a flock.
You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth.
[2]  Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh,
stir up your might
  and come to save us!
[3] Restore us, O God;
  let your face shine, that we may be saved!
[4] O LORD God of hosts,
  how long will you be angry with your people's prayers?
[5] You have fed them with the bread of tears
  and given them tears to drink in full measure.
[6] You make us an object of contention for our neighbors,
  and our enemies laugh among themselves.
[7] Restore us, O God of hosts;
  let your face shine, that we may be saved!

 

[17] But let your hand be on the man of your right hand,
  the son of man whom you have made strong for yourself!
[18] Then we shall not turn back from you;
  give us life, and we will call upon your name!
[19] Restore us, O LORD God of hosts!
  Let your face shine, that we may be saved!

(Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19 ESV)
