A most helpful Psalm!

I'll admit it...sometimes I have a bit of trouble praying for those charged with running things.

Are you running a company into the ground...arrrgghhhhh!!! Yes, I struggle with praying for you! Do I feel that you're taking a good thing and undoing it piece by piece? You're making it hard for me!!

Here's another that I wrestle with: our elected officials. Whew. Some I voted for, some I did not. But, man oh man...if you're part of the parade (whether it be on a local, state or national level) taking our country down the path to you-know-where? I just don't seem to be able to find the words that truly convey what I want to say to the Lord about the situation.

Today, I discovered that the words I have been looking for already exist. Right in God's Word. And here they are:

May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership.
Psalm 109:8 NIV

Perfect. May your days (in whatever role you're fulfilling) be few and may another come along to replace you. Short, sweet and to the point - why didn't I think of that?!

Perfect! I am with you all the way. I also have much trouble praying for my ex-SIL. Trouble with a Capital T!!

Thanks - I needed that. Lately the psalms have been full of just exactly the right words I need in many of my current situations and prayer needs.

Blessings to you and may your days be long.
