I have adapted this prayer from Psalm 35 for all families who have experienced unjust treatment and are suffering. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, I urge you to dig deep into your faith and find the hope He has for you. If you are not a follower of Jesus, I pray you will seek the strength and comfort He desires to give you during your time of suffering.
O Lord, You know all about this family’s situation.
We implore You,
Do not stay silent.
Do not abandon this family now, O Lord.
Wake up! Rise to their defense!
Take up their case, my God and my Lord.
Declare them NOT guilty of all false accusations,
O Lord my God, for You give justice.
Don’t let their enemies laugh about them in their day of trouble.
Don’t let them say, “Look, we got what we wanted!
Now we will eat them alive!”
May those who rejoice at their troubles
Be humiliated and disgraced.
May those who triumph over them
Be covered with shame and dishonor.
But give great jot to those who came to their defense.
Let them continually say, “Great is the Lord,
Who delights in blessing His servant with peace!”
Then we will all proclaim Your justice,
And we will praise You all day long.
Based on Psalm 35
