Very short post today: Yet, I feel it is urgent
The words ‘show no mercy’ were a loud whisper in my mind at 3:00 a.m. this morning. So I decided to see if they could be found in the Holy Scriptures. Here is what I am finding; and here is my current prayer for an America in need
My Prayer for America:
Deliver me from my enemies, O God;
protect me from those who rise up against me.
2 Deliver me from evildoers
and save me from bloodthirsty men.
3 See how they lie in wait for me!
Fierce men conspire against me
for no offense or sin of mine, O LORD .
4 I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me.
Arise to help me; look on my plight!
5 O LORD God Almighty, the God of Israel,
rouse yourself to punish all the nations;Show no mercy to wicked traitors.NIV
Pray God’s Word back to Him. This is a good idea to do. Remind Him. Partner with Him in this by agreeing with His Word.
Deliver us from America's enemies, O God'
protect us from those who rise up against us.
Deliver us from evildoers
and save us from bloodthirsty men.
See how they lie in wait for us !
Fierce men conspire against us
for no offense or sin of ours, O LORD
We have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack us.
.....can we really say that we have no sin or done no wrong? OUCH !
Arise to help us; look on our plight!
O LORD God Almighty, the God of Israel
rouse Yourself to punish all the nations;
Show no mercy to America's wicked traitors.
Reading the whole of Psalm 59 is good; along with the whole of Psalm 37; along with the whole of Psalm 125.
See for yourself…
P.S. Isaiah 26:10
Though grace is shown to the wicked,
they do not learn righteousness;
even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil
and regard not the majesty of the LORD .” NIV
6 "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces. NKJV
Is not grace a pearl?
The Living Bible puts it this way:
Your kindness to the wicked doesn't make them good; they keep on doing wrong and take no notice of your majesty. They do not listen when you threaten; they will not look to see your upraised fist. Show them how much you love your people. Perhaps then they will be ashamed! Yes, let them be burned up by the fire reserved for your enemies. TLB
SELAH… SHOW US YOUR GLORY, O MIGHTY LORD
.... let no mercy be shown to wicked traitors, by You or by our Nation, O Lord....
