Scripture: Psalm 109:1-13
How did David restrain evil? Since we have the same covenant David had, that is a very good question. If we learn how David restrained evil, then we can simply follow in his pattern. Are we going to stand and do our part or will we allow evil to continue? How many believers today bless those in authority and their prayers essentially enable evil? Psalm 109:1-13 is David’s prayer that shows us where he stands on this issue. Verses 1-13 say, “Do not keep silent, O God of my praise! For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful Have opened against me; They have spoken against me with a lying tongue. They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause. In return for my love they are my accusers, But I give myself to prayer. Thus they have rewarded me evil for good, And hatred for my love. Set a wicked man over him, And let an accuser stand at his right hand. When he is judged, let him be found guilty, And let his prayer become sin. Let his days be few, And let another take his office. Let his children be fatherless, And his wife a widow. Let his children continually be vagabonds, and beg; Let them seek their bread also from their desolate places. Let the creditor seize all that he has, And let strangers plunder his labor. Let there be none to extend mercy to him, Nor let there be any to favor his fatherless children. Let his posterity be cut off, And in the generation following let their name be blotted out.” David not only prayed that God would remove them, but he prayed God would cut off their children! David brought God on the scene to terminate the enemy! And God did! Do we have answers to termination prayers? If we do not, we should! And we had better start praying!
