A Psalm of David
140 Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;
2 Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
3 They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders’ poison is under
4 Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.
5 The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me.
6 I said unto the Lord, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O Lord.
7 O God the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.
8 Grant not, O Lord, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves.
9 As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
10 Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
11 Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.
12 I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.
13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence. (KJV)
Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence. We say to you O Lord, You are our God; give ear to the voice of our pleas for mercy, O Lord! O Lord, our Lord, the strength of our salvation.
We cry to you O Lord that the forces of evil who are killing your people around the world might be stopped. Let also the terrorists that claim to do your biding be unsuccessful and be frustrated. They are killing innocent women and children and burning churches particularly in Africa.
Now their influence is affecting some in this country to become radicalized and kill indiscriminately for no reason. Since the Supreme Court decision on Abortion many radicals are now attacking and vandalizing churches and Pro-life organizations in the name of freedom and civil rights. Let the plots of such be thwarted; let them go down in defeat and be utterly unsuccessful and be caught in the midst of their actions. Let the laws finally be applied to such. Let justice be applied equally on the right or the left, regardless of race or wealth.
We cry to you for those who would be terrorists and killers of believers, let them be supernaturally converted to your Word and teaching. Let many of them accept your Son Jesus and the truth rather than following through with their evil plans and deeds. Let them be saved and revival come in their midst. Let your Kingdom come and your will be done instead.
In Jesus name, Amen.
