PRAYER FOR ENEMIES AND SAINTS

July 19

David asked God to respond to his prayer for vindication. He had shown love to an unidentified group of people, but they had returned hatred, lying, and evil. He did not avenge their injustice but pleaded with God to do so. “We believe that there is an unspoken assumption in all cases of this sort, namely, should the wicked opponent turn from his ungodliness and seek the Lord, no one would be happier than the writer of the psalm. But these opponents of his were apparently not very likely to give any evidence of repentance. Since these were men whose wickedness was deeply rooted, it was only natural to wish for the total overthrow of these men and what they stood for. A godly man could certainly not pray for their success.” Are we praying for the ungodly to be saved and changed, but if they will not, that God will stop their wickedness? Are we praying for our enemies and asking God to deal with them or are we seeking our own revenge? Seeking revenge should not be true of Christians. Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written: “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY,” says the Lord. (Romans 12:19)

O God of my praise, do not be silent! (Psalm 109:1)
