Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

A Stronghold for the Oppressed | Praying Psalm 9

I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.

I rejoice that the enemies of my soul turn back in your presence.

You rule the nations O King of kings. You rule with righteous judgment. You are Lord over the nations. You are just in your reign.

Though nations rise and nations fall and man remembers them no more, you O LORD are enthroned forever. You have established your throne for justice. You judge the world with righteousness. You judge the peoples with uprightness.

Yet you LORD are a stronghold for the oppressed, a fortress in times of trouble and those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.

We sing praises to the LORD who sits enthroned over all. We remember you and give testimony of your deeds! For you are for us God and are ever mindful of us - you do not forget the cry of the afflicted.

Be gracious to me, O LORD! See my affliction from those who hate my soul, O you who lift me up from the gates of death, that I may recount all your praises, that in the gates of the faithful I may rejoice in your salvation.

I look and see that the nations have sunk in the pit that they made; in the net that they hid their own foot has been caught. You LORD have made yourself known but all nations that forget God shall stand before their Maker.

For the needy shall not always be forgotten, and the hope of the poor shall not perish forever.

Arise, O LORD! Let not man prevail; let the nations bow before you! Put them in fear, O LORD! Let the nations know that they are but men!

Amen
