Prayer for the Restoration of God’s Favor

To the leader. Of the Korahites. A Psalm.

1Lord, you were favorable to your land;

you restored the fortunes of Jacob.

2You forgave the iniquity of your people;

you pardoned all their sin.   Selah

3You withdrew all your wrath;

you turned from your hot anger.

4Restore us again, O God of our salvation,

and put away your indignation toward us.

5Will you be angry with us forever?

Will you prolong your anger to all generations?

6Will you not revive us again,

so that your people may rejoice in you?

7Show us your steadfast love, O Lord,

and grant us your salvation.

8Let me hear what God the Lord will speak,

for he will speak peace to his people,

to his faithful, to those who turn to him in their hearts.

9Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him,

that his glory may dwell in our land.

10Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet;

righteousness and peace will kiss each other.

11Faithfulness will spring up from the ground,

and righteousness will look down from the sky.

12The Lord will give what is good,

and our land will yield its increase.

13Righteousness will go before him,

and will make a path for his steps.
