FATHER, HAVE MERCY UPON OUR NATION


 

Today’s Reading:

Psalm 80:13-16

“The boar out of the wood doth waste it; and the wild beast of the field doth devour it. Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine; and the vineyard which thy right had hath planted, and the branch that thou maddest strong for thyself. It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.” (vv. 8-16 AKJV)

 

O Lord God of hosts, Thou that dwells in the midst of cherubim, stir yourself look down with mercy upon our nation, come down, rescue us, deliver and save us from the hands of the wicked who do not know Your or fear You. See what has happened to our once favoured nation. See what the arrogant and wicked power has done to our nation.


Our nation is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance, O God of host, the Captain of heaven’s army, Come down from your throne and pass through our nation with your mercy and compassion.


If you know it, please join me to sing this Yoruba song (in the dialect of the South Western people of Nigeria), and pray as the Holy Spirit leads you. Also intercede for the salvation of the perishing souls. It is a penitent song asking for God’s mercy, forgiveness and intervention upon our land. Thank you.


1. Gb' adura wa, Oba aiye,

Gbat' a wole fun O;

Gbogbo wa nkigbe n' irele,

2. Ese awon baba wa po,

L’O ti f’ ore Re han.

Nigba ewu, bo’omi jija,

K’a ma ri ranwo Re.


3. L’ ohun kan, Gbogbo was wole,

Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth. Before us and our nation stir up thy strength and come to save us. Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved. Amen.

  3. Father, heal our nation and the people, in Jesus’ name.

  4. Let there be true revival and holiness in the lives of the people and in our land, in Jesus’ name.

  5. Father, uproot everything you have not planted in the body of Christ and restore your Pentecostal power and fire, in Jesus’ name.

  6. Father, use the situation in our nation to populate your kingdom, in Jesus’ name.

  7. Let there be peace and progress in our nation, in Jesus’ name.
