A Cry to God

Dagon, Baal, Astarte, and other Modern Idols - The Harvard Ichthus

Make the idols fall, O Lord!

Here are some words from Psalm 79, by Asaph, that jumped out at me this morning.

“Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name’s sake.”  —Psalm 79:9

Let it serve us as a prayer. Our country has been sold into the hands of evil and ungodly persons.

“Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is their God? let Him be known among the heathen in our sight by the revenging of the blood of thy servants…” (v. 10)

Not for our sake, Lord–we need your forgiveness!–but for your own great name’s sake, for your honor and glory’s sake, overthrow the heathen and destroy their enterprise.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. Our prayers based on the Scriptures need to be said as proclamations. The Bible says believers in Jesus are prophets, priests, and kings, and it goes on to say “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
