Psalm 44 -God's Work in TImes of War

In former times, people were sure that God had given them fortune and misfortune,   victory and defeat, plenty and famine.
They reveled in good times and blamed themselves for disasters.

But, if the virtuous won all the wars
  and had all the good luck,
We’d have heaven on earth by now.

Your work is not on our battlefields or in our
  political assemblies.
Your work is in our hearts—all those
  callings, nudgings, longings.
The more we can open our hearts to You
  the more we know you are present.
Your Presence gives us power.
  We must awaken to that love.
