Praying Through: Psalm 35:4-6

The Psalm

Psalm 35:4–6 (CSB)
4 Let those who intend to take my life be disgraced and humiliated; let those who plan to harm me be turned back and ashamed.

5 Let them be like chaff in the wind, with the angel of the LORD driving them away.

6 Let their way be dark and slippery, with the angel of the LORD pursuing them.

The Prayer

My Conquering God

You descended to the cross with great joy.

You faced Death and called out Life

You bear the weight of my complete sin

You gave yourself over and allowed them to nail you to the cross

They mocked others grieved. your heart was pierced your love washed over your body broken your Spirit remained until the justified wrath of God was meant for me was finished pouring on you

When you cried out, "IT IS FINISHED!" when your Spirit left when your breath exhausted at that very moment you snapped the neck of Death the realms of Hell became yours my sin was removed infinitely away demons cried out in pain and Satan the Prince of Lies the Condemner of Man the Fallen Angel was conquered stripped of his power put to open shame forever.

And all the angels bear witness, Worthy is the Lamb that was just slain, Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty who was and is and is to come.
