Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 72 "A Prayer for Leadership"

Good Morning World!

This morning our reading is very important to everyone.  We all need and/or have a leader in our life.  We all have someone whether a person, police force, or government that we must answer to.  We all have people in our lives that lead us: teachers, pastors, business owners, mayors, presidents, prime ministers, premiers, kings and/or queens.  These people lead us, and teach us.  We hope that they are directing us in the right direction, however, sometimes they do not.  This morning's reading is a prayer for Solomon by the passing King David.  We ought to pray a similar prayer for the people in our lives who are leaders.

Psalms 72
 1Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king's son.
 2He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.
 3The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
 4He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
 5They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.
 6He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.
 7In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
 8He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
 9They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.
 10The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
 11Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.
 12For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.
 13He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
 14He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
 15And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.
 16There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
 17His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.
 18Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.
 19And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.
 20The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended. (Psalm 72, King James Version)
