A prayer based on Psalm 43

A prayer based on Psalm 43 by Ruth Jarman

“Why are you so downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?”
Lord, the enemy is near, stalking our children.
Vindicate us, O God,
and plead our cause against an ungodly world system;
rescue us from deceitful and wicked powers.
You are God our stronghold.
Why have you rejected us?
Why must we go about mourning,
oppressed by the enemy that lies in wait for our sons and daughters?
Send forth your light and your truth,
let them guide us;
Let your light and your truth guide how we deal with our hopelessness,
Let your light and your truth guide us to live in a way that fights instead of feeding the enemy.
Let your light and your truth reveal the foolishness of greed and rampant consumerism and lead the nations to repentence and the path of life.
“Why are you so downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God
for I will yet praise him,
my Saviour and my God.”
