Praying through First Samuel, Chapter 24 – Avenging the Enemy
I’m excited to share this 31-day marriage prayer series hosted by my friend and fellow blogger, Davonne Parks, The Tidy Mom. The series is taking place here at MarriagePrayers.today for the entire month of October.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Reading about David’s integrity humbles and convicts us. When You delivered Saul into David’s hand, David chose not to kill him. Not only that, but David was brave enough to face Saul and begin an honest conversation.
Lord, please help us to be brave and full of integrity, too. When we’re faced with the chance to avenge our enemies, help us to offer grace instead of pay-back (Romans 12:18-20).
We want to be a united front in this, peaceful warriors for You, at battle against Satan and his armies. Show us how we can help shine a light in this spiritual war, and how we can live peaceably with those who persecute us.
In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
“David also arose afterward, and went out of the cave, and cried after Saul, saying, My lord the king. And when Saul looked behind him, David stooped with his face to the earth, and bowed himself.” 1 Samuel 24:8, KJV
“Then David went out of the cave and called out to Saul, ‘My lord the king!’ When Saul looked behind him, David bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground.” 1 Samuel 24:8, NIV
