a king’s purpose

Psalm 72:1-4 (JDV)

Psalm 72:11 God, give your justice to the king and your righteousness to the king’s son.
Psalm 72:2 He will judge your people with righteousness and your afflicted ones with justice.
Psalm 72:3 May the mountains bring well-being to the people and the hills, righteousness.
Psalm 72:4 May he vindicate the afflicted among the people, help the poor, and crush the oppressor.

a king’s purpose

A king is not given his rule for the purpose of building himself up, but but for providing rescue and well-being for his people. He and his son are a gift from God, intended to mirror his justice and righteousness.

So, this is what we wish and pray for concerning our leaders today. God’s purpose for them has not changed, and this psalm reflects the principle that our leaders need our prayers for them to accomplish God’s purpose.

Lord, make our leaders mirror your justice and righteousness.
