Praying the imprecatory psalms

I’m excited to have another essay done! This is the second in my run of three essays due within three weeks. As with all of the essays I have written this year, it took some time to get my head around, but I’m really pleased with what I have learned as a result. Here is the collage for you:

Thinking through the psalms of vengeance and the appropriateness (or not) of Christian’s praying these psalms for themselves, it has struck me again what a great gift of grace we have in Christ, that we don’t need to face the judgment seat of God, Christ has taken our judgment upon himself that we might be forgiven.

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! -Romans 11:33
