Now rescue your beloved people.
Answer and save us by your power. (Ps. 60:5)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...

a rallying point in the face of attack. (Ps. 60:4)

Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
You, O God, are my king from ages past,
bringing salvation to the earth. (Ps. 74:12)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
Don't let the downtrodden be humiliated again.
Instead, let the poor and needy praise your name. (Ps. 74:21)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
O God, why have you rejected us so long?
Why is your anger so intense against the sheep of your own pasture? (Ps. 74:1)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
With God's help we will do mighty things,
for he will trample down our foes. (Ps. 60:12)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
Have you rejected us, O God?
Will you no longer march with our armies?
Oh, please help us against our enemies,
for all human help is useless. (Ps. 60:10-11)
