Psalm 72--Prayer for the powerful
May those in power in the world
rule with justice and righteousness.
May the poor be rescued, the oppressors crushed,
and your love reign from generation to generation.
The nations together will establish prosperity for all
and wisely use the fruits of the earth.
Then will their promise be fulfilled—
The nations will be blessed and blessings
Serving the One whose creation this is.
