Let them be before the LORD continually, that He may cut off the memory of them from the earth! For he did not remember to show kindness, but pursued the poor and needy and the brokenhearted, to put them to death. He loved to curse; let curses come upon him! He did not delight in blessing; may it be far from him! He clothed himself with cursing as his coat; may it soak into his body like water, like oil into his bones! May it be like a garment that he wraps around him, like a belt that he puts on every day! May this be the reward of my accusers from the LORD, of those who speak evil against my life!
Lord, this is difficult to pray against those who curse and persecute me. Has this not been replaced by the directive to bless those who attack me?
My prayer is that You will put an end to the days of my enemies and a beginning to their days as brothers in Your Kingdom. That You will end that flow of the generational curses in the only way possible; through the cleansing power of Your blood to remove sin from the fathers and from the children.
