Powerful Gratitude Prayer for Jesus–Psalm 72

“Thank You, Lord, for endowing King Jesus with Your justice,
    the royal Son with Your righteousness.
He judges Your people in righteousness,
    and Your afflicted ones with justice.

The mountains bring prosperity to the people now,
    the hills the fruit of righteousness.
He defends the afflicted among the people
    and saves the children of the needy;
    He crush’s the oppressor.
He endures as long as the sun,
    as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
He’s like rain falling on a mown field,
    like showers watering the earth.
In His days, the righteous flourish
    and prosperity abounds for them
until the moon is no more.

He rules from sea to sea
    and from the river to the ends of the earth.
The desert tribes bow before Him
    and His enemies lick His dust.
The ancient kings of Tarshish and of distant shores
    bring tribute to Him always.
The ancient kings of Sheba and Seba
    still present Him with gifts.
All the current kings of power will bow before Him;
    all Nations will serve Him.

For He deliver’s the needy who cry out,
    the afflicted who have no one to help them.
He take’s pity on the weak and the needy
    and saves the needy from eternal death.
He will rescue them from oppression and violence,
    for so precious is their blood in His sight.

Long live our King! Our Savior! Our Messiah!
    May gold from Sheba forever be given Him.
May all people forever pray to Him,
    and bless Him all day long.
May grain abound throughout our land;
    on the tops of the hills may it sway.
May the crops flourish like olden days of Lebanon
    and thrive like the grass of the field.
May His Name endure forever;
    may it continue as long as the sun.

Soon all Nations will be blessed through Him,
    and they will call Him blessed.

Praise be to the Lord God Almighty, the God of Israel,
    Who alone does marvelous deeds.
Praise be to His glorious Name forever;
    may the whole earth be filled with His glory.
Amen and Amen!”

[Adapted from Psalm 72]
