Yesterday I received an very upsetting email. In this email this person made an insulting and dishonest offer to settle their project I have been working on. So I got up early this morning and asked God how should I pray for these kind of people. The Lord told me:
“These people actually destroy people for money, and they rule by fear and intimidation.”
Lord, please show me how to pray, for I would love to see You destroy everything they own, and make them have to work with their hands, instead of using money this way. Then they would see the other side, the integrity of people who work hard with their hands, and do what they say they will do, even if they lose money keeping their promise.
Lord, listen to my cry for help. I am praying to You because I know You will answer. Protect me from wicked people who are without integrity. Listen to their boasting, Lord, bring them to their knees! By the power of Your hand, destroy them because they look to this world for their reward. They attack people when they are in distress.
Son, everyone must submit to someone, so give them the little respect they deserve – as you work for them. Remember, love does no wrong to others, and this fulfills My requirements. Clothe yourself with My presence, and don’t let yourself think about ways to get even. Don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong. You may believe there’s nothing wrong with what you are doing, but keep it between yourself and Me. So listen to Me, and consider the Rock from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were mined, as My treasured son. Do not be afraid of their scorn, or fear their insults. For I will comfort you and lead you all the way.
Son, why are you upset by these mere humans, who wither like the grass and disappear? I will put My words in your mouth, then they will recognize that I am the One who speaks to them. My way is perfect, and you must remember that all of My promises are true. I will be your shield for you looked to Me for protection.
You can be sure that they will give a personal account to Me. To the faithful – I show Myself faithful; to those with integrity I show My integrity; but to the wicked I will show them My hostility. I will rescue the humble, and I will humiliate the proud. I will strike these proud people down so they will not get up. I will arm you with My strength for the battle ahead, and they will fall under your feet. When they call for My help, I will not come to their rescue. When they cry out to Me for mercy, I will refuse to answer; for it will be too late because they refused Me every time I came to them. I will pay back those who have harmed you by handing them over to their tormentors; those who they fear the most. Soon they will come to know My power and authority.
Lord, You are my Rock, my Fortress, and my Savior. You have the power to save me. For I called on You and You saved me from my enemies. In my distress You heard me from Your Sanctuary. You heard my plea for justice.
