My Enemies Turn Back
December 14, 2019
Women Of The Nation Pray!
We come before You, oh Righteous Judge and cite Your own scripture as our precedent today. Psalm 9, verses 3-20
state, “When You appear, we worship while all of our enemies run in retreat. They stumble and perish before Your
presence. For You have stood up for our cause and vindicated us when we needed You the most. From Your
righteous throne You have given us justice. With a blast of Your rebuke nations are destroyed. You obliterated their
names forever and ever. The Lord thundered and our enemies have been cut off, vanished in everlasting ruins. All
their cities have been destroyed-even the memory of them has been erased. But the Lord of eternity, our mighty God,
lives and reigns forever!
You sit enthroned as King ready to render Your verdicts and judge all with righteousness. You will issue Your decrees
of judgment, deciding what is right for the entire world, dispensing justice to all. All who are oppressed may come to
You as a shelter in the time of trouble, a perfect hiding place. May everyone who knows Your mercy keep putting their
trust in You, for they can count on You for help no matter what. O Lord, You will never, no never, neglect those who
come to You. Listen, everyone! Sing out your praises to the God who lives and rules within Zion! Tell the world
about all the miracles He has done. He tracks down killers and avenges bloodshed, but He will never forget the ones
forgotten by others, hearing every one of their cries for justice. So now, O Lord, don’t forget us. Have mercy on us.
