Today's prayer: Blessed be the LORD, my rock,who trains my hands for battle,my fingers for war

Psalms, Chapter 144

 1Of David.

I

*Blessed be the LORD, my rock,

who trains my hands for battle,

my fingers for war;

2My safeguard and my fortress,

my stronghold, my deliverer,

My shield, in whom I take refuge,

who subdues peoples under me.

II

3*LORD, what is man that you take notice of him;

the son of man, that you think of him?a

4*Man is but a breath,

his days are like a passing shadow.b

5*LORD, incline your heavens and come down;

touch the mountains and make them smoke.c

6Flash forth lightning and scatter my foes;

shoot your arrows and rout them.

7Reach out your hand from on high;

deliver me from the many waters;

rescue me from the hands of foreign foes.

8Their mouths speak untruth;

their right hands are raised in lying oaths.*

9O God, a new song I will sing to you;

on a ten-stringed lyre I will play for you.d

10You give victory to kings;

you delivered David your servant.e

From the menacing sword11deliver me;

rescue me from the hands of foreign foes.

Their mouths speak untruth;

their right hands are raised in lying oaths.

III

12May our sons be like plantsf

well nurtured from their youth,

Our daughters, like carved columns,

shapely as those of the temple.

13May our barns be full

with every kind of store.

May our sheep increase by thousands,

by tens of thousands in our fields;

may our oxen be well fattened.

14May there be no breach in the walls,

no exile, no outcry in our streets.g

15Blessed the people so fortunate;

blessed the people whose God is the LORD.h

* [Psalm 144] The Psalm may reflect a ceremony in which the king, as leader of the army, asked God’s help (Ps 144:18). In Ps 144:9 the poem shifts abruptly from pleading to thanksgiving, and (except for Ps 144:11) shifts again to prayer for the people. The first section (Ps 144:12) is a prayer of thanks for victory; the second (Ps 144:37a), a humble acknowledgment of human nothingness and a supplication that God show forth saving power; the third (Ps 144:911), a promise of future thanksgiving; the fourth (Ps 144:1215), a wish for prosperity and peace. A prayer for deliverance from treacherous foes serves as a refrain after the second and third sections (Ps 144:7b811). Except for its final section, the Psalm is made up almost entirely of verses from other Psalms.

NAF TEST FIRES LOCALLY PRODUCED ROCKETS

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has successfully test fired 30.1mm ground to air Inert Head Rockets locally produced by its Research and Development Team. The rockets were test fired during the Weapons Meet at Kwenev Air Range, Makurdi to commemorate the 53rd anniversary celebration of the NAF.  Also produced by the NAF R& D were the ground based rail launcher and vehicle mounted rail rocket launcher.  The rocket launchers are fired through a remotely controlled firing based system. Aside from the display of air defence weapon, there was also a spectacular demonstration of weapon delivery by some of the NAF platforms. The aircraft fired both rockets and canons with high level of precision. A total of 4 NAF aircraft participated in the weapons meet with each arriving over the range with a spacer pass at 200ft for the helicopters and 300ft for the jets. The participating aircraft included Augusta 109 LUH with backdoor gunner, L-39ZA, Alpha Jet and F-7Ni.  The exercise was aimed at sharpening the targeting skills of NAF pilots to acquire and engage targets as well as test the precision of the aircraft in hitting the targets. Four designated targets were identified and the formations attacked the targets one after the other starting with cobra, tiger and aggressor formations.

In his remarks at the occasion, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Gabriel Olonishakin felicitated with the NAF on its 53rd anniversary celebration and   commended the commitment of the current NAF leadership for improving the capacity of officers and men. “Today, I am proud to declare that the NAF has lived up to expectation. This sequencing, airmanship and accurate delivery of firepower from the various platforms that participated at the Air Weapons Meet are highly commendable”.

Gen Olonishakin also disclosed that Nigeria can boast of an Air Force that can deliver appropriate air power as witnessed in the North East where the NAF air interdiction, ground attack and close air support missions played a pivotal role in the counter-terrorism/insurgency operations.

Today's prayer: God Let my prayer be incense before you;my uplifted hands an evening offering.

Psalms, Chapter 141

 
1A psalm of David.

LORD, I call to you; hasten to me;

listen to my plea when I call.

2Let my prayer be incense* before you;

my uplifted hands* an evening offering.a

3Set a guard, LORD, before my mouth,

keep watch over the door of my lips.b

4Do not let my heart incline to evil,

to perform deeds in wickedness.

On the delicacies of evildoers

let me not feast.

5*Let a righteous person strike me; it is mercy if he reproves me.

Do not withhold oil from my headc

while my prayer opposes their evil deeds.

6May their leaders be cast over the cliff,

so that they hear that my speeches are pleasing.

7Like the plowing and breaking up of the earth,

our bones are strewn at the mouth of Sheol.

8For my eyes are upon you, O LORD, my Lord;d

in you I take refuge; do not take away my soul.

9Guard me from the trap they have set for me,

from the snares of evildoers.e

10Let the wicked fall into their own nets,

while only I pass over them safely.

* [Psalm 141] A lament of an individual (Ps 141:12) who is keenly aware that only the righteous can worship God properly and who therefore prays to be protected from the doomed wicked (Ps 141:310).
