At this moment, Father,
I'm so unhappy because I'm filled with hate,
I hate the pride and arrogance creating evil behavior around me.
You know who these lovers of calamity are.
Now I ask, Father,
Is it wrong for me to be hating this?
For it is said, "To fear the Lord is to hate evil.....(Proverbs 8:13)
Hating though is not who I am and I ask, Father,
Change my unhappiness into happiness.
Guard me and deliver me from the hand of the wicked
devising evil out of selfish desires.
You see the deceit, Father,
and I know its there,
They aren't happy unless others are unhappy or fighting.
Intentionally, they tempt, to make Love not sincere,
for it is said:
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. (Romans 12:9)
Yes, intentionally they make it hard to make Love sincere
and to cling to what is good.
Through divination and occult practices some watch,
while others do as well through deceitful devices,
believing they are always one step ahead.
Make them see, Father,
that they in fact are two steps behind.
Is it your will that we are led into sin by evil desires of another?
They look down on the lost who search for You.
When will their success end?
How long will it be before You look down on them?
What about Matthew 18:10?
See that you do not look down on one of these little ones.
For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see
the face of my Father in heaven.
They have no mercy in them, nor do they care if another is hurting.
Now make them, Father,
For my mercy is my love, hope, faith, and trust in You.
Is not all that complete devotion?
If what I'm asking,Father is not Your will
then may it not be done,
but if it is Your will,
then may it be done all over earth as it is in heaven.
I ask this in Jesus' name,
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come.
