A Prayer for Vindication


The Psalms

A Prayer for Vindication
Shiggai’on of David, which he sang unto the LORD, concerning the words of Cush the Benjamite.
1 O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust:

save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:
2 lest he tear my soul like a lion,

rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
3 O LORD my God, if I have done this;

if there be iniquity in my hands;
4 if I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me;

(yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy;)
5 let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it;

yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth,
and lay mine honor in the dust.

6 Arise, O LORD, in thine anger,

lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies:
and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.
7 So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about:

for their sakes therefore return thou on high.
8 The LORD shall judge the people:

judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness,
and according to mine integrity that is in me.

9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end;

but establish the just:
for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. Rev. 2.23
10 My defense isof God,

which saveth the upright in heart.
11 God judgeth the righteous,

and God is angry with the wicked every day.

12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword;

he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
13  He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death;

he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity,

and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
15  He made a pit, and digged it,

and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
16 His mischief shall return upon his own head,

and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.

17 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness:

and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.


He made a pit, and digged it,
And has fallen into the pit which he has made.

His mischief shall return upon his own head,
And his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate. 


Today I am reminded that God has my back.
He not only Has me in the storm- he IS the storm.

He is my song. My refuge. My fortress and my strength.
And a very present help in times of trouble.

I can go out in the world today- here or there- knowing that He’s watching over me and that He’s got my back!
THAT is a good feeling.

All of these God-haters that are slagging on me?
Eh. They’re just fulfilling the Scriptures. Even the unbelievers are confirming that God’s word is true by their very hatred against it.

God is so awesome.
And yes, I am in great company.
