In Psalm 82 it is apparent that Asaph, the writer, was tired of the oppression of the righteous and the helpless. So he cried out to God.
I’m with Asaph. I’m tired of the thousands, millions of people who are oppressed by cruel governments especially those leaders hostile to Gospel of Jesus Christ.
So, along with Asaph, I cry out to the God of the universe, who created it all. All power and authority has been given to His Son, Jesus. Dear God, help my persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ overcome TODAY and bring revival to their countries. I pray that the prosperity in these countries would end up in the hands of all the humble servants of Christ. Heavenly Father, use this prosperity to help them lead their countries and cause the Gospel to spread like wildfire! I know, dear God, that it’s your will that none should perish! And with You, especially, pertaining to the Gospel…Nothing shall be impossible!
Psalm 82 ~
3 “Give justice to the poor and the orphan;
uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute.
4 Rescue the poor and helpless;
deliver them from the grasp of evil people.
5 But these oppressors know nothing;
they are so ignorant!
They wander about in darkness,
while the whole world is shaken to the core.
6 I say, ‘You are gods;
you are all children of the Most High.
7 But you will die like mere mortals
and fall like every other ruler.’”
8 Rise up, O God, and judge the earth,
for all the nations belong to you.
