Please Do Something God!

(A psalm by Asaph.)

Please Do Something, God!

82 When all of the other gods
    have come together,
    the Lord God judges them
    and says:
“How long will you
keep judging unfairly
    and favoring evil people?
Be fair to the poor
    and to orphans.
    Defend the helpless
    and everyone in need.
Rescue the weak and homeless
    from the powerful hands
    of heartless people.

“None of you know
    or understand a thing.
You live in darkness,
    while the foundations
    of the earth tremble.

“I, the Most High God, say
that all of you are gods
    and also my own children.
But you will die,
just like everyone else,
    including powerful rulers.”

Do something, God!
Judge the nations of the earth;
    they belong to you.

What a brilliant title for a Psalm.

Really, the basic cry of our hearts and our prayers – Please do something God.

May there be justice

Let there be fairness

Defend the helpless

Rescue the weak

Hold back the heartless

And so we pray that today.  We pour out our hearts for the things that trouble us.

Please do something God.
