Psalm 72

The king prays.  The leader.

Help me to judge as You would.

Help me to walk in Your righteousness.

The mountains and hills will provide for the people. 

The king will defend the afflicted, save the children of the needy and crush the oppressor. 

God will be feared as long as the sun and moon endure.

The king will be like showers to the earth – providing what is necessary for life.

While the king rules, those who follow God will flourish. 

The king rules over everything and everyone – other kings honor him and bring him gifts.

The people pray for him and bless him.

Praise be to God who empowers the king.

 

Dear God, please help us to pray this for our next President.
