A prayer for justice and vengeance

Oh, Lord God of love and vengeance, 

You uphold the cause of the fatherless and widows.
You put the orphans in families.
You release those imprisoned by sin into freedom.
You bring justice for the abused.
You feed the hungry and clothe the naked.
You sit with the lonely.
You heal the sick.
You remember the abandoned.
You lift up the fallen.
You embrace the unloved.

You are all we need.
Always and forever.
You are everything we could ever long for, 
hope for,
or strive for.

No, you are more than that.
I praise you and believe in you 
that you will serve justice and give hope to _________
as he/she fights against the evil forces that come against his/her life.
I pray for God's Holy Spirit to pour out like fire from heaven 
on ___________ and the needs sitting before him/her.

Decimate the evil that pushes in
and the enemy that sows doubt, fear, and worry.
I pray against the Liar of all lies,
against his forces of evil
and against the people who allow the enemy to work in them and through them.

If they will not repent, Lord--
and we hope that they do--
and that we will forgive--
I pray in Jesus' name for you to take them down.
I pray your power and your vengeance to pour out on behalf of 
the abandoned children,
the betrayed spouse,
the jobless parent.
Defend the cause of the heartbroken,
the ashamed,
the hurting,
the weak,
the accused,
the abused.

You are enough.
You are powerful enough.
You are holy enough.
You are just enough.
You are merciful enough.
You will punish the wicked.

And we will not fear.
We will not say "Why aren't you helping us?"
We will not wonder if you can sustain us.
We will believe.

We claim your power and your righteousness.
To be all the honor and the glory forever.
In the mighty name of Jesus,
Amen.

Appoint someone evil to oppose my enemy; let an accuser stand at his right hand.
When he is tried, let him be found guilty, and may his prayers condemn him.

 (Psalm 109:6-7)
