Restore Us O God

Read Psalm 80

The last Sunday of each month our morning service is focused exclusively on the psalms for singing and preaching. We have been journeying through the Psalms of Asaph (73-83) and this morning Psalm 80 was our focus. It is a psalm about praying for the revival of God’s people, His Church, because she has turned away from God and gone astray. Set in the time of King Ahaz of Judah and the conquest of the northern kingdom by Assyria, this psalm pleads for the Lord to restore the countenance of his face upon his people.
