For the Libyan People

Oh, Lord, hear my prayer for the people of Libya.

Please protect those poor people.
Protect them from murder,
and from the evil plans
of evil people.
Please watch over them.

Show them that you are God,
and that you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness.

Let not the arrogant stand.
Oppose and frustrate
all who do wrong.
Stand against
the bloodthirsty and deceitful.

Lead them, LORD, into peace,
into righteousness.

Even as the people rebel against earthly tyrants,
teach them the kindness and mercy
of the King of Glory.

Let all who take refuge in you
be glad;
let them ever sing for joy,
now and when the dust settles.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you,
and those who do not know you
may be drawn to you,
in Jesus' name, amen.
