Many are they who say, there is no God, God does not see. Many rise up that trouble Your people, who slay the widow and the fatherless and the sojourner. Many pass laws and regulations and increase taxes to crush the poor and trouble the righteous, and they say that they will get away with it because they think there is no God who will intervene and save.
But You, O Lord, are our Shield. You are our glory. And You lift up our heads. Salvation belongs to You alone. And so we cry out to You alone. How long will You not hear the cries of the innocent? How long, O Lord, will you allow the murderous holocaust of abortion in our land? How long, O Lord, will you allow our insolence in the high places, our bribery and payoffs, our lies and our theft, our abominations under every green tree, every strip mall, every movie theater, every pride parade.
Rise up, O Lord and fight for us. Break out the teeth of the lions. Strike them on the cheek, so that they know there is a God in Heaven, so that they know that Jesus is Lord.
We will not fear if the ungodly surround us with taunts and jeers and threats. We will rest in you. We will sleep soundly every night. Because we worship You, Our Father, in the name Jesus Christ alone, by the power of the Holy Spirit, world without end, Amen.
