Why, O Lord, do you seem to stand far away and hide yourself in times of trouble? Why do you allow the arrogant the wicked to hotly pursue the poor? Bring justice and let the wicked be caught in the schemes that they have devised.
In their pride the wicked does not seek you; all their thoughts are, “There is no God.”
Though it is folly, the ways of the wicked prosper at times; yet your judgments are on high, out of his sight. He foolishly says in his heart, “I shall not be moved; throughout all generations I shall not meet adversity.”
Lord please turn the heart of the wicked from cursing to blessing ... from deceit to integrity ... from oppression to compassion ... from mischief to obedience ... from sin to righteousness ... from murder to love ... from covetousness to generosity.
Open the eyes of the wicked to see the folly of saying “God has forgotten, he has hidden his face, he will never see it” and “You will not call him to account” ... remove the blinders from their eyes dear Lord.
Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up your hand; forget not the afflicted.
The Lord is king forever and ever; the nations perish from his land.
O Lord, you hear the desire of the afflicted; you will strengthen their heart; you will incline your ear to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth may strike terror no more.
