Reminder to Self: You Prayed This

Asaph's Prayer

Psalm 80, verse 3:

O God [Elohim, Almighty God, Supreme Being, Creator and Ruler of everything],

restore us [turn us around, bring us back to the position/condition of our intended-to-be this-is-how-You-made-us state]

and cause Your face [Your presence, Your person (What is the significance of God's face in scripture?)]

to shine [to become light, as in not dark; to illuminate, as in no confusion, no chaos] upon us,

and we will be saved [delivered, liberated, victorious].

Verbs throughout the psalm: Lord, please

* turn again to us now

*look from Heaven

*take care of us

*put Your hand on us

*revive us

Verses 7 and 19:

O Lord God of Hosts, restore us and cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.
