PRAYING FOR THE WORLD (2) - tyranny and terrorism From Psalm 10 Lord, you listen to the prayers of the lowly and give them courage; you hear the cries of the poor and the weak, and you judge in their favour; you take notice of trouble and suffering, and are always ready to help: look upon those who are oppressed - where the proud persecute the poor, where terrorists prey on the helpless, where spies wait to trap the unwary and drag them away, where the wicked crush their victims and brute strength defeats the innocent, where evil people do not fear you, and say ?God does not care what we do.' Lord God, break their power, until evil has no part in your world and you rule for ever and ever. Amen.
