Prayer in times of attack

Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked … they talk of laying snares secretly … God shall shoot at them with an arrow … He will make them stumble over their own tongue … All men … shall declare the work of God.Psalm 64:2.

David had been the victim of secret plots and wounded by words spoken from deceptive hearts. He had been deceived by men who promised to act honorably but who were preparing to trap him.King David asks the Lord to hear his voice in his complaint, and to preserve his life from dread of the enemy, and to hide him from the secret counsel of evildoers and the tumult of those who do iniquity.David knew that all of his enemies had been counseling together against him, trying to conceive a plot to take his life, and take his kingdom. He asks the Lord to rescue him from the ‘tumult’ or “secret counsel” of the wicked.

As believers, we can feel vulnerable to these types of secretive plots. They can fill us with fear and uncertainty. Others may plot against us, but, as David learned, we always can trust God. We can be confident that He knows the “secret plots of the wicked.” We can know for sure that He will take care of us and defend us.

prayer

Father, shine Your light on us. Help us to be pleasing to You. May our life have an impact on Your kingdom. In Jesus’ name, amen.Father, shine Your light on me. Help me to be pleasing to You.
