Psalm 80

 Psalm 80 for North America


1 Give ear, O Shepherd of The Americas*, You who lead North America like a flock; You who dwell between the cherubim, shine forth!

2 Before the United States, Canada, and Mexico, stir up Your strength, and come and save us!

3 Restore us, O GOD; cause Your face to shine, and we shall be saved!

4 O LORD GOD of hosts, how long will You be angry against the prayer of Your people?

5 You have fed us with the bread of tears, and given us tears to drink in great measure.

6 You have made us a strife to our neighbors, and our enemies laugh among themselves.

7 Restore us, O GOD of hosts; cause Your face to shine, and we will be saved!

8 You have brought a vine out of Europe; you have cast out the natives, and planted it.

9 You prepared room for it, and caused it to take deep root, and it filled the land.

10 The hills were covered with its shadow, and the cedars of GOD with its boughs.

11 She sent out her boughs to the Atlantic, and her branches to the Pacific.

12 Why have You broken down her hedges, so that all who pass by the way pluck her fruit?

13 Pride uproots it, and greed devours it.

14 Return, we beseech You. O GOD of hosts; Look down from heaven and see, and visit this vine

15 and the vineyard which Your right hand has planted, and the branch that You made strong for Yourself.

16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down; we perish at the rebuke of Your countenance.

17 Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand, upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself.

18 Then we will not turn back from You; revive us, and we will call upon Your name.

19 Restore us, O LORD GOD of hosts; cause Your face to shine, and we shall be saved!

Who Am I?

 1 “Then GOD said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the wild animals of the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’ So GOD created man in His own image; in the image of GOD He created him; male and female He created them. And the LORD GOD formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. And the LORD GOD said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.’ And the LORD GOD caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD GOD had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said, ‘This is now flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman because she was taken out of Man.’”

2 ”‘LORD, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days, That I may know how frail I am. Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths, and my age is as nothing before You; Certainly every man at his best state is but vapor. For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.’”

3 “’Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O GOD! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with You.’ ‘A man’s steps are of the LORD; how then can a man understand his own way?’ ‘For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope.’”

4 “’Listen, O coastlands, to Me, and take heed, you peoples from afar! The LORD has called Me from the womb; from the inward parts of My mother He has made mention of My name. And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of His hand He has hidden Me. And made Me a polished shaft; in His quiver He has hidden Me. And now the LORD says, Who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant to bring Jacob back to Him, so that Israel is gathered to Him (for I shall be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and My GOD shall be My strength).’ Then the Word of the LORD came to me, saying: ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I set you apart; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.’ For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which GOD prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”

5 “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of GOD, who loved me and gave Himself for me. This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him. If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself. Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of GOD. And He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.”

Who am I?

I am created a spirit, soul, and body in the image of GOD.

He formed me in my mother’s womb.

He wrote out the days of my life before any of them existed.

He called and gifted me for His purpose before I was born.

I am a new creation in Christ Jesus.

Isaiah 31 for the United States

 1Woe to those who go to humanism for help,

And rely on self,
Who trust in politicians because they are many,
And in humanists because they are very strong,
But who do not look to the Holy One of the United States, Nor seek the Lord!
2Yet He also is wise and will bring disaster,
And will not call back His words,
But will arise against the house of evildoers,
And against the help of those who work iniquity.
3Now the humanists are men, and not God;
And their politicians are flesh, and not spirit.
When the Lord stretches out His hand,
Both he who helps will fall,
And he who is helped will fall down;
They all will perish together.
4For thus the Lord has spoken to me:
“As a lion roars,
And a young lion over his prey
(When a multitude of shepherds is summoned against him,
He will not be afraid of their voice
Nor be disturbed by their noise),
So the Lord of hosts will come down
To fight for the United States and for its hill.
5Like birds flying about,
So will the Lord of hosts defend Washington DC.
Defending, He will also deliver it;
Passing over, He will preserve it.
6Return to Him against whom the children of the United States have deeply revolted. 7For in that day every man shall throw away his idols of technology and his idols of wealth—sin, which your own hands have made for yourselves.
8“Then the proud shall fall by a sword not of man,
And a sword not of mankind shall devour him.
But he shall flee from the sword,
And his young men shall become forced labor.
9He shall cross over to his stronghold for fear,
And his leaders shall be afraid of the banner,”
Says the Lord,
Whose fire is in the Church
And whose furnace is in Washing DC.
