Ebola crisis prayer–The Lord who is present

Psalm 113:1-4
Praise the Lord!
Yes, give praise, O servants of the Lord.
Praise the name of the Lord!
Blessed be the name of the Lord
now and forever.
Everywhere—from east to west—
praise the name of the Lord.
For the Lord is high above the nations;
his glory is higher than the heavens.

We praise You, Lord God, for who can be compared with You, enthroned on high?  You stoop to look down on heaven and on earth.  You lift the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump.

We humbly beseech You to send our praises over Sierra Leone, Mali, Liberia, and Guinea.  You are enthroned on the praises of Your people.  We implore You to be present to these nations whose need is so dire.   Your name is Jehovah-Shammah, the Lord who is present.  Do not leave or forsake them.  Amen.

Psalm 113, 22:3
