A Prayer for My Enemies



God, as I was reading 1st Samuel 19:17, it referenced 2nd Samuel 2:22 but I accidentally turned to 2nd Samuel 22:2. Here’s the thing. I prayed to you last night, asking if I could find a prayer in the bible that I could pray to help me through this battle, to avenge me of my enemies, to protect me. I wasn’t sure if there was such a prayer and that I would Google it in the morning. Normally, I almost always pick up my phone as soon as I wake, but instead I chose to pick up my bible. And here you were waiting for me. Just for me! Turning to 2nd Samuel 22:2 was not a coincident, it was you answering my prayers. You gave me the perfect prayer and I have reworded it for myself. 

In praising you in the midst of my circumstance, I praise you for being my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer. Yes, in you I will trust. You are my shield, the horn of my salvation, my hightower, my refuge. I will call on the Lord who is worthy to be praised. So shall I be saved from mine enemies. In my distress, I cry out to you. Thank you God that you did hear my cry. My cry did enter your ears. Then you showed yourself. 

I believe on this day, you will show yourself O God. Deliver me from my strong enemy and from those that hate me for this is too strong for me Father. Be my stay Lord God. Lord, I ask that you have delighted in me to deliver me. Bring me forth into a large place. God if iniquity be upon me, cleanse me God, give me clean heart, but if I be free of iniquity, by your grace, Lord God, regard me according my righteousness. 

Thank you for being my lamp. God, please lighten my darkness. As for you Father, your way is perfect. Your word is tried. You are a protector to all that trust in you. God you are my strength and my power, and maketh my way perfect. You setteth me up in high places. 

Teach my hand to war that a bow of steel is broken in my arms. Give me the shield of salvation I beg you. Enlarge my steps under me that I do not slip. Gird me up with the strength to battle so that those that rise up against me are subdued that I may destroy my enemies until they are consumed, that they may have fallen under my feet. Lord, I will ask that you deliver me ahead of the heathen. 

Praise be to you, O Mighty and Masterful God. You are alive. The Lord liveth! Blessed be my rock. Exalted be the God who is the rock of my salvation. It is God that avenges me and that brings my enemies under me. Bring me forth from more enemies, you have lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me, you have delivered me from the violent man. There, I will give thanks to you. Even in the presence of my enemies, I will sing praises unto your holy name. You are the tower of salvation and have mercy on me O Lord for now and forever. Amen. Amen.

For those of you that do not know, 2nd Samuel 22:2 was a song that David sang unto the Lord the day that he delivered David from his enemies and Saul. 

I pray that you find hope here. But even if you don’t, just find trust. The more you start trusting in God the more hope you will have. If the word says it to be true, IT IS! Try God today 🙌

Do you have any prayers for times of conflict? Please share. Your prayer may be someone’s future prayer.

I Absolutely Love You God

First of all God I absolutely love spending time with you. Like for me there’s no place I’d rather be. I’m okay with no one understanding me on that  for better words I don’t have any desire to hang out with friends. I know they say I need a break, and I do, but my break is solitude and Bible and prayer time. That’s my social time and if you have never felt that way, well, welp oh well, that’s how I feel and I really don’t want to hear anyone’s opinion about it. God I love you and all of your ways and I love spending my time with you. Like I need you. I need to choose you. Not like I need you because you could end my life at any moment but I need you as in my heart desires you. A lot of times I want to shut down from the world because I want my time with you. That’s why it will be important for my husband to understand that. Maybe on Friday night, he could sit beside me while I’m journaling and journal too or listen to a sermon or read the Bible. My God, My God. I’ll be married and

The Next Step

God, I learned a few things today. They’re all jumbled up inside so I ask that you please help me get them out. Wow, where do I begin? I watched the video with Pastor D where a few things stuck out. One of the things was being in God’s order and marriage. I begin to feel like “where do I go from here?”. I’ve left my old life and got myself in order, but what’s next? I want to grow deeper with you but was unsure of what comes after this. Not that I’m trying to rush you but I felt more like I was becoming complacent and letting you down. Like I was missing something or wasn’t doing something for you. Also, I’ve been desiring marriage but I don’t want to focus on it in fear that I’d be idolizing it. But this video sermon talked about order and marital relationships. And I realize that next step in order for me is marriage. But God I have a lot to deal with in regards to marriage in which the video also revealed. His message was able to reveal to me that I have some wounds that need

He Is...

The other day my friend and I were talking and she was going through her own trials that seem to have her down. She said she couldn’t sleep and couldn’t stop crying. It seemed like everything was getting her at once and she could only take it one day at a time. Let me give you some history on my friend, a little back story. We met in a time where I was uncertain about where I was with God. I knew God, and prayed to God, but I had cut Jesus out of my life. Remember in one of my previous journals I mentioned how I believed the hype that worshipping Jesus was idol worshipping and it was a sin. Because after all, idol worshipping was breaking one of the commandments. Yeah, someone whom never cracked open the Bible at least knew the basics right? WRONG! Well anyway, she and I had gone on a dinner date to Baltimore and on the drive home, we began talking about Jesus and I asked who Jesus was to her. She said God. I said how I felt Jesus wasn’t God. He may be real, he may have existed, bu
