A Prayer for Restoration

Psalm 80:1-3

Psalm 80:1-7
Listen, Shepherd of Israel, who leads Joseph like a flock; You who sit enthroned on the cherubim, rise up before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh.  Rally Your power and come to save us.

Restore us, God; look on us with favor, and we will be saved.

Lord God of Hosts, how long will You be angry with Your people’s prayers?   You fed them the bread of tears and gave them a full measure of tears to drink.

You make us quarrel with our neighbors;  our enemies make fun of us.
Restore us, God of Hosts; look on us with favor, and we will be saved.

Psalm 80:14-19
Return, God of Hosts.   Look down from heaven and see;  take care of this vine, the root Your right hand has planted, the shoot that You made strong for Yourself.

It was cut down and burned up;  they perish at the rebuke of Your countenance.   Let Your hand be with the man at Your right hand, with the son of man You have made strong for Yourself.

Then we will not turn away from You;  revive us, and we will call on Your name.   Restore us, Lord God of Hosts;  look on us with favor, and we will be saved.

Psalm 82

God has taken His place in the divine assembly;
He judges among the gods:

“How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked?

Provide justice for the needy and the fatherless;
uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute.
Rescue the poor and needy; save them from the power of the wicked.”

They do not know or understand; they wander in darkness.
All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

I said, “You are gods; you are all sons of the Most High.
However, you will die like men and fall like any other ruler.”

Rise up, God, judge the earth, for all the nations belong to You.
