Psalm 21:8-12Your hand will find out all your enemies; your right hand will find out those who hate you. You will make them as a blazing oven when you appear. The LORD will swallow them up in his wrath, and fire will consume them. You will destroy their descendants from the earth, and their offspring from among the children of man. Though they plan evil against you, though they devise mischief, they will not succeed. For you will put them to flight; you will aim at their faces with your bows.
Your word provides a clear delineation between those who love You and those who hate You. It is a clearly marked path of obedience to Your Word, with either side being lives of misery and suffering but the path is one of light and love. Lord, I lift up each one known to me who is not on that path, praying that the eyes of their heart will be opened to the beauty of Your Word.
Voices Together is taken from my daily meditations and is shared in the hope that others will be encouraged to use the Psalms as a basis for their own prayers, It is available in other formats including a daily e-mail, as a weekly bulletin insert for churches and for use in prison ministry, and published as an annual devotional.
