For he did not remember to show kindness,
but pursued the poor and needy
and the brokenhearted, to put them to death.
17 He loved to curse; let curses comea] upon him!
He did not delight in blessing; may it be farb] from him!
18 He clothed himself with cursing as his coat;
may it soakc] into his body like water,
like oil into his bones!
19 May it be like a garment that he wraps around him,
like a belt that he puts on every day!
20 May this be the reward of my accusers from the Lord,
of those who speak evil against my life!
21 But you, O God my Lord,
deal on my behalf for your name’s sake;
because your steadfast love is good, deliver me!
22 For I am poor and needy,
and my heart is stricken within me.
23 I am gone like a shadow at evening;
I am shaken off like a locust.
24 My knees are weak through fasting;
my body has become gaunt, with no fat.
25 I am an object of scorn to my accusers;
when they see me, they wag their heads.
26 Help me, O Lord my God!
Save me according to your steadfast love!
27 Let them know that this is your hand;
you, O Lord, have done it!
28 Let them curse, but you will bless!
They arise and are put to shame, but your servant will be glad!
29 May my accusers be clothed with dishonor;
may they be wrapped in their own shame as in a cloak!
30 With my mouth I will give great thanks to the Lord;
I will praise him in the midst of the throng.
31 For he stands at the right hand of the needy one,
to save him from those who condemn his soul to death.

So grateful to Lyneta Smith author of Curtain Call for sponsoring the Pray Every Day Show! Lyneta Smith thought she was having a breakdown, when in fact, she was having a breakthrough. Read the inspiring story of how she stepped out of her stage-perfect Christian life and into the journey toward healing and finally seeing God as a good, loving father.
You can get a copy of Curtain Call here.
I’m also grateful to William Cocker Sr author of Prayers for the People for his sponsorship this month.
Prayers for the People is book is a collection of pastoral prayers (from worship, weddings, funerals, communion, and benedictions). When we pray together, we’re transformed. Pastor William B. Coker, Sr, prays for the people, lifting their needs before our Father who is able and willing to answer. Together we connect with God, concerned about others and their needs. Every petition is infused with an intimate knowledge of Scripture and hymns.
I’m also honored to have sponsorship from Jilliann Woods of the Be Bold Live free Podcast.
