-Praying Psalm 140

by Dr. D ~ December 18th, 2015

A Psalm of David.

140 Deliver me, O Lord, from evil men;
preserve me from violent men,
2 who plan evil things in their heart
and stir up wars continually.
3 They make their tongue sharp as a serpent’s,
and under their lips is the venom of asps. Selah

4 Guard me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
preserve me from violent men,
who have planned to trip up my feet.
5 The arrogant have hidden a trap for me,
and with cords they have spread a net;[1]
beside the way they have set snares for me. Selah

6 I say to the Lord, You are my God;
give ear to the voice of my pleas for mercy, O Lord!
7 O Lord, my Lord, the strength of my salvation,
you have covered my head in the day of battle.
8 Grant not, O Lord, the desires of the wicked;
do not further their[2] evil plot, or they will be exalted! Selah

9 As for the head of those who surround me,
let the mischief of their lips overwhelm them!
10 Let burning coals fall upon them!
Let them be cast into fire,
into miry pits, no more to rise!
11 Let not the slanderer be established in the land;
let evil hunt down the violent man speedily!

12 I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted,
and will execute justice for the needy.
13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to your name;
the upright shall dwell in your presence.  (ESV)

Our Father,

Surely the righteous shall give thanks to your name; the upright shall dwell in your 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 in this country and around the world. They are killing innocent women and children and burning churches. Now their influence is affecting some in this country to become radicalized and kill indiscriminately for no reason. Let the plots of such be thwarted. Some are hoping to ruin the celebration of the birth of your Son Jesus. Let them go down in defeat and be utterly unsuccessful.

Let those who would be terrorists and killers of believers be supernaturally converted to your Word and teaching. Let many of them accept your Son Jesus and the truth during this time of celebration rather than following through with their evil plans and deeds.

In Jesus name, Amen.
