Psalm 1230

The wicked take council together, Father,

with hopes to take life away

but in these times of trouble, You, O Lord,

are our hiding place.

They do not know the secret place of Your presence

where great is Your goodness for those who fear You.

We who trust in You ignore the noise of the haughty

as we rejoice in You for the wicked find many sorrows

and their pain increases as they work evil.

They look to their own strength for deliverance.

Their soul does not wait for the Lord,

No, they take matters into their own hands,

Yes, with dirty hands they turn to witchcraft and sorceries,

laying nets in secret through spells,

that they may catch us when our foot slips

that they may say, "AHA! We have seen for ourselves!

No one will help them!"

Yes, Father, their hope is a vain thing,

claiming to be wise when in fact they have no knowledge.

Mighty people aren't delivered by great strength

they look to and wait for the Lord who delivers from every fear.

Their faces are not ashamed and they radiate

as fierce witnesses rise up to reward evil for good

The Lord is far above them and with His right hand

they are crushed forever to rise no more.

Their name is forgotten like wind that once blew,

gone now and forever

for the Lord makes their path dark and slippery,

and their molded images are delusion and chaos

bringing their works to nothing.

Hear us in the darkness, Father, in You our soul delights.

We proclaim your lovingkindnes through the night watches

You will hold our hand, Yes, He who hears in the secret place

guards under the shadow of His wing

lifting up our praises to our Lord, our God, our King

Jesus Christ

May your spirit protect the faithful scattered amongst the nations

and judge in truth those who seek out injustice.

May all who take up charities or collect monies in Your name

for their own wealth and benefit, and have nothing to do with You

overturn them like a table that cannot stand anymore.

Bring them low and lift up the lives of the faithful

bring forth justice for the sake of truth.

"But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise,

and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;

and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen,

and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,

that no flesh should glory in His presence" (1 Corinthians 1:27-29)

May it and let it be,

I ask this in Jesus' name,

AMEN!

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,

Who was, who is, and who is to come
