Psalms (book 2) - 1

rich and famous kings

Psalm 72:15-17 (JDV)

Psalm 72:15 May he live long! May gold from Sheba be given to him. May prayer be offered for him continually, and may he be blessed all day long.
Psalm 72:16 May there be plenty of grain in the land; may it wave on the tops of the mountains. May its crops be like Lebanon. May people flourish in the cities like the grass of the field.
Psalm 72:17 May his name endure permanently; as long as the sun shines, may his fame increase. May all nations be empowered by him and call him blessed.

rich and famous kings

Psalm 72 is a prayer for the king. What if we prayed like this for our president? Instead of complaining about wealthy politicians, what if we actually prayed for the prosperity and blessing of our leaders? There is nothing wrong with that, as long as we also pray for the people’s prosperity as well (16).

And let us not forget to pray that our leaders become world-famous for empowering the nations (17).

LORD, bless us with godly leaders, and bless our leaders with a positive influence on the world.
