Praying through the Psalms for those we love …
Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the Lord’s praise,
for he has been good to me.
Indeed, Father, see these loved ones, give light to their eyes. In your light may they, with us, discern between spiritual and devilish oppression and their own sin and guilt.
With light, give them GRACE to overcome, to repent where needed, to stand and fight the good fight of faith, to spurn the advances of their enemies through their own repentance, love, compassion, and purity of heart.
Never let their foes rejoice or triumph, O Lord!
Until they can fully trust Your unfailing love … we do so on their behalf! And our hearts rejoice on their behalf.
