David was angry at being attacked by evil people who slandered him and lied. Yet David remained a friend and a man of prayer. While we must hate evil and work to overcome it, we must love everyone, including those who do evil, because God loves them. We are called to hate the sin, but love the person. Only through God’s strength will we be able to follow David’s example. (NLT)
Psalm 109:1-4 – O God, whom I praise, don’t stand silent and aloof while the wicked slander me and tell lies about me. They are all around me with their hateful words, and they fight against me for no reason. I love them, but they try to destroy me—even as I am praying for them!
Here is a part of Harriet’s story:
“David could have fought against these men. He was a mighty warrior. He could have judged them because he was the king. But what did he choose to do instead? He prayed. David, the soldier and king, considered prayer his best defense against these enemies. What a powerful model for us to live by!”
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY – When We are troubled, prayer is our best choice.
Prayer: Dear heavenly Father, thank you so much for the privilege of prayer. Regardless of our circumstances, help us to be people of prayer. In your son’s name. Amen.
Prayer Focus: MY ENEMIES
