Psalm 67 (King James Version)
1God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.
2That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.
3Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
4O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.
5Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
6Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
7God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.
The first verse reminds one of the Aaronic benediction. When God blesses God's people, the world is able to learn of God. Miracles performed to support and protect God's people can cause the world to rejoice and praise God.
Asking God to do something wonderful for you, to perform a miracle, is not always a selfish request. In fact, asking that God do something special for you can be a very unselfish request. God's answering your prayer may turn hearts and heads toward the heavenly.
