Part 5 – Prayer Psalms – Bonhoeffer


When we pray these Psalms we remember it is not the enemies of our personal conflict spoken of here but the enemies that are against God’s cause. The prayer for the vengeance of God is the prayer for His execution of righteousness in the judgment of sin. God’s judgment against sin (death) must be made public if God’s word is to stand. I too as a sinner must come under judgment. Jesus Christ himself requested the execution of God’s wrath on his body – This evidence how grave sin is. It evidences His love for us. Scripture on God’s final judgment: -
(Rev 18, 19, 20: 11)

Relevant prayers in Psalms:  5,7,9,10,13,16, 21, 68, 69, 70, 71, 137 to name a few
