We look to you for help. We wait with confidence for You to save us. You! Oh God! You will certainly hear us. Do not gloat over me, my enemies! For though I fall, I will rise again. Oh yes! Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light. Oh yes! Blessed be his holy name! We may fall down but we get up. The Lord is our lamp and light. Whom shall we fear!
The Lord’s hand is not short. He will always reach down to us. No matter how far we fall. He is the God of redemption and mercy. Show us mercy and rescue us from our enemies. We call out to you. That’s what your Word says to do! You say! Come unto me all who are heavy ladened and I will give you rest. You say! Call unto me and I will answer. You say! I will never leave you nor forsake you. You say! I will be your rearguard.
Oh lord of the Angel Armies. Guard us before and behind. Stand guard over President Trump and Vice President Pence. Stand guard over America. Stand guard over your Church. Protect us with your Shepherd’s staff. You say! I will do mighty miracles for you. Like those I did when I rescued Israel from slavery in Egypt. We claim this promise over our President. Over America. Over the Church. In Jesus mighty name!
Where is another God like you? Who pardons the guilt of the remnant. Overlooking the sins of his special people. Take up our case and give us justice for all we have suffered from our enemies. The Lord will bring us into the light. We will see his righteousness and it will shine like the morning sun. Take up our case over this vile covid19. Send it to flight. Send healing on your wings and deliver us from this scourge. We declare it defeated. We will us see it gone from before our eyes! Oh yes! What a day that will be!
Then our enemies will see that the Lord is on our side. They will be ashamed that they taunted us. Ha! They say. So where is the Lord - that God of yours? We say! He is with us! And enemy, with our own eyes we will see your downfall. You will be trampled like mud in the streets. Oh! Yes you will. We will trample trample trample the enemy like mud in the streets.
You! Oh Holy One! You will show us your faithfulness and unfailing love. Just as you promised to Abraham and Jacob so long ago. Oh yes! Your promises are forever to a thousand generations. Though we fail and fall. We will rise. Though we are in darkness you will be our light. You promised.
In Jesus name. Amen.
