Here’s A Great Prayer To Pray When You’re Under Attack
You know what’s more obvious than the fact that Yoko Ono can’t sing a flippin’ lick? It is this: true Christians will be attacked by the world, the flesh, and the Devil.
Given the fact that, in this world, you will have whacked crap come your way via satanic interference, in the form of bad government and bad religion (John.16:33) and fleshly bents, why do Christians still seem shocked when it happens?
The powers of darkness are supposed to assault the believ- er. You’re their enemy. Hello. What do you expect them to do, buy you a Slurpee?
David says here in Psalm 54 that he needs God to “save (him)” … from “strangers” and “oppressors” who were seek- ing “after his soul.”
In other words, David’s in a mell of a hess.
With a lot of Christians today, if they were in David’s sandals, under that type of duress, the text would read that the strangers and the oppressors whupped the Christian’s back- side and Satan won that tussle.
Not so, here with David.
David says in the throes of a throw down with his enemies, God did the following to his adversaries …
- God helped David.
- God upheld David’s soul.
- God rewarded evil to David’s enemies.
- God cut David’s attackers off.
- God delivered David out of all his troubles.
- And David got to see his enemies get fish-slapped by the mighty hand of God.
This should be our testimony when hell comes against us. Enjoy Psalm 54 and tuck this bad boy away in your prayer arsenal to use when “strangers” and “oppressors” attack your soul.
1 Save me, O God, by Your name,
And vindicate me by Your strength.
2 Hear my prayer, O God;
Give ear to the words of my mouth.
3 For strangers have risen up against me,
And oppressors have sought after my life;
They have not set God before them.
4 Behold, God is my helper;
The Lord is with those who uphold my life.
5 He will repay my enemies for their evil.
Cut them off in Your truth.
6 I will freely sacrifice to You;
I will praise Your name, O Lord, for it is good.
7 For He has delivered me out of all trouble;
And my eye has seen its desire upon my enemies.
