Praying Through: Psalm 37:14-15

The Psalm

Psalm 37 (CSB)
14 The wicked have drawn the sword and strung the bow to bring down the poor and needy and to slaughter those whose way is upright.

15 Their swords will enter their own hearts, and their bows will be broken.

The Prayer

My One Avenger

When I am hurt

  • when people hurt me
  • when they attack me
  • when they do their worse.

Help me to take no offense

  • to take my pain to you, O God
  • because on your Son
  • is all of my sin
  • treason
  • disease
  • pain
  • and suffering
  • That belongs to you.

I will no longer live

  • on offense
  • by angry
  • by destruction
  • by pain
  • bv sin
  • because you have called me to live in your Son alone

Be my love, O Lord.

I love you.
