Reardon: praying against principalities and powers

Sunday, July 22, 2018
    Feast of Mary Magdalen, Apostle to the Apostles
Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness
    because of my enemies—
    make straight your way before me.
    —Psalm 5:8 (NIV)
    To relinquish any of the Psalms on the excuse that its sentiments are too violent for a Christian is a clear sign that a person has also given up the very battle that a Christian is summoned ... to fight. The Psalms are prayers for those who are engaged in an ongoing spiritual conflict. No one else need bother even opening the book.
    ... Patrick Henry Reardon, Christ in the Psalms, Ben Lomond, California: Conciliar Press:, 2000, p. 6 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 5:8-10; 109:9-20; 140:1-4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, arm me against unbelief.
