"Give Us Life!" - 24 February 2019


Give us life, and we will call upon your name! Restore us, O LORD God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved (Psalm 80.18b-19)!

Turn again, O God of hosts! Look down from heaven, and see; have regard for this (Psalm 80.14) your Church in all nations, for Heritage, for these churches in the OKC area: New Vessels Christian Church; Northwest Christian; Putnam City Christian; and Western Oaks Christian Church; and for the United Methodist Church. Turn to us and be gracious to us; give your strength to your servants and save the sons and daughters of your maidservant. Show us a sign of your favor that those who hate us may see and be put to shame because you, LORD, have helped us and comforted us (Psalm 86.16-17). Restore us, O LORD God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved (Psalm 80.18b-19)!

Consider, O God, those who do not know you or have broken faith with you….Change their hearts that they may confess Jesus as Lord and believe in their hearts you raised him from the dead, so that they may come to join with us in worshiping and serving you; Restore us, O LORD God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved (Psalm 80.18b-19)!

O God, please refresh those who are weary; replenish those who are parched; restore those who are bowled over; revitalize those who are vitiated; … On their behalf and with them we pray; Restore us, O LORD God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved (Psalm 80.18b-19)!

O God, we pray for our nation and leaders, including our Oklahoma State Representatives. May we be directed and guided to protect the defenseless (born and unborn) and to stand up and stand in for those who are oppressed. Profit our businesses, grant our schools, colleges, universities, homeschools, private schools and vocational schools to succeed in educating our students that they may be well cultivated for the life ahead of them. Provide what is lacking for this State. Furnish us with what we need to have plenty of fresh water, bountiful crops and abundant livestock. We pray for our country; Restore us, O LORD God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved (Psalm 80.18b-19)!

O God, please be with all world leaders and their countries. We pray that you would re-establish order, solid infrastructures, medical establishments, schools, and families in those places devastated by wars and rebellion. We pray that you would have mercy on those desiccated by drought or drowning in floods; those made paltry by famine or by inefficient food production. For the nations and peoples of the world we pray; Restore us, O LORD God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved (Psalm 80.18b-19)!

For Christ’s sake, give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, who leads Joseph like a flock. You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth, and Restore us, O LORD God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved (Psalm 80.18b-19)! Amen.
