8月6日靈修禱文|DEVOTION

The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed,a stronghold 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. Sing praises to the Lord, who sits enthroned in Zion!  Tell among the peoples his deeds! For he who avenges blood is mindful of them; he does not forget the cry of the afflicted.

Psalm 9:9-12

Thought

This year, many people feel that they have lost a whole year.  Apart from reduced activities and economic recession due to the pandemic, there are still many people in various places of the world who are oppressed, living in extreme pain for a long time, and their freedom was exploited.  For example, there are some countries with frequent civil wars, young people living in human trafficking, and people living under totalitarian government.  Their days are lost like running water every day.  Psalm 9 says that God is the ultimate shelter. He remembers those who are aggrieved and never forgets those who are suffering.  When I think about the loss of this year, I also never forget to remember those who are still living in distress.  Let them know that the hope is in God because He is our shelter.

Prayer

Thank you Father for we can still speak to worship you.  Pray that God can help those who are living in loss of freedom, being oppressed, and living in hardship.  Let them be comforted in God, and to know you and follow you.  May you execute salvation and justice among the nations. Amen!

耶和華要作受欺壓者的庇護所, 在患難時的庇護所。 耶和華啊,認識你名的人要倚靠你, 因你沒有離棄尋求你的人。 應當歌頌居於 錫安 的耶和華, 將他所做的傳揚在萬民中。 那位追討流人血的, 他記念受屈的人, 不忘記困苦人的哀求。

詩篇 9:9-12

思想

在這一年裡,很多人都覺得是失去了一整年,除了因為疫情,活動減少,經濟衰退。在世界很多的地方還有很多人被欺壓,長年在極度痛苦下生活,自由被剝削。好像一些經常有內戰的國家、活在販賣人口生活中的年青人、在極權政府下生活的人。他們的日子每天去像流水一樣失去。詩篇第9篇說出上帝是那位終極的庇護所,他記念那些受屈的人,永不忘記困苦的人。當我想到我們失去這一年時,都不忘去記念那些仍然活在困苦的人,讓他們知道盼望在上帝,因為祂是我們的庇護所。

禱告

感謝天父我們仍然可以開口來敬拜你。求神幫助活在失去自由、被壓迫、活在困苦的人,讓他們在神裡面得著安慰,去認識你跟隨你。願你在萬民中施行拯救、施行公義。阿門
