I love the boldness in the prayer lives of those who wrote the psalms. They are not afraid to call out their prayers exactly as they see them.
“May those who seek my life be disgraced and put to shame; may those who plot my ruin be turned back in dismay. May they be like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the Lord driving them away; may their path be dark and slippery, with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.” Psalm 35:4-6
This is a powerful pursuit of God’s role as the Hound of Heaven packing a wallop. Too often we’re afraid to pray the big, the bold, and the ugly against our enemies. But Scripture isn’t. This is big stuff.
But sometimes praying for the angel of the Lord to intervene in the hearts and lives of those against God’s Kingdom is exactly what’s needed. Often it takes that kind of dark, slippery path to bring them to a place of recognition that they need a new way to go.
So, go ahead. Pray big! Pray bold!
Thank You, Father that no matter how big my prayers are, You are bigger and You always have exactly the right answer.
