Psalm 83 – A Prayer for Enemies




O God

do not keep silence

Instead give peace and quiet the day

Behold your enemies

Who lay out plans to block Your way


They wipe out nations

May ours be not forgotten still

They act as one

To curse your everlasting will


The tents of Edom

Moab, Tyre and lot are linked

We ask you Lord

To Change the way our rivals think


Like chaff in wind

Make them to be like whirling dust

As fire consumes

May You do so with tempest gust



May they face shame

So they may seek Your name, O Lord

May they soon know

That You are not to be ignored
