-Praying Psalm 58

by Dr. D ~ August 8th, 2015

A Miktam[1] of David.

58 Do you indeed decree what is right, you gods?[2]
Do you judge the children of man uprightly?
2 No, in your hearts you devise wrongs;
your hands deal out violence on earth.

3 The wicked are estranged from the womb;
they go astray from birth, speaking lies.
4 They have venom like the venom of a serpent,
like the deaf adder that stops its ear,
5 so that it does not hear the voice of charmers
or of the cunning enchanter.

6 O God, break the teeth in their mouths;
tear out the fangs of the young lions, O Lord!
7 Let them vanish like water that runs away;
when he aims his arrows, let them be blunted.
8 Let them be like the snail that dissolves into slime,
like the stillborn child who never sees the sun.
9 Sooner than your pots can feel the heat of thorns,
whether green or ablaze, may he sweep them away![3]

10 The righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance;
he will bathe his feet in the blood of the wicked.
11 Mankind will say, “Surely there is a reward for the righteous;
surely there is a God who judges on earth.”  (ESV)

Our Father,

All people are naturally born to say in their hearts- “Surely there is a reward for the righteous; surely there is a God who judges on earth.”  Yet the wicked seem to multiply and success seems to find them anyway.

The evil one reaches out to so many from the very beginning and seems to reward those who ignore your word and captain there own lives seeking wealth and power at any cost. But they really are not in charge but are enslaved by the enemy who gives them visions of freedom while he chains them up according to their own pleasures and desires. The evil one has convinced many that there is no God and that this life is all that there is and they have no real expectation or hope for a life to come. He has stolen their hope and purpose in life and has replace it with obsession.

But the righteous really do rejoice in this life and have your Spirit to guide them and give them purpose. And they have hope in the life to come in the name of your Son Jesus.

We pray for those who the evil one and his minions have enslaved even though they come against us as enemies. Let the walls which the evil one has built be melted away so that they can see the truth and the truth can set them free.

Nevertheless, in the meantime protect us from such who our enemy uses to try and bring us down and make our life more difficult. Blunt their arrows, break their teeth, and tear out their fangs as they come against us and try to put down your church.

Let the truth be known, let the light shine in the darkness, and let the captives be set free. We look for the coming of your Son when every knee shall bow and every tongue will bless his name and your word will be confirmed in every nation and everyone who ever lived will finally know the truth.

In Jesus name, Amen.
