Lord, my prayer for my country lies in your Psalms. Yours is the perfect justice. Your way is the only one to righteousness. Teach us to provide and look after the needy. Show us your glory and protect the children. Be our rock and refuge as You crush the oppressor and uphold freedom. Lead us to glorify You and live a life that pleases You. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Give the king your justice, O God, and your righteousness to the royal son! May he judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with justice! Let the mountains bear prosperity for the people, and the hills, in righteousness! May he defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor!” (Psalm 72: 1-3 ESV)
