    I was greatly besieged by my enemies suddenly and without cause or warning. I sought the LORD in prayer and asked fellow believers to stand with me in prayer. I went to church Sunday and the pastor preached using psalm 3 . I was assured in my spirit that GOD heard my prayers and knows what to do. HE HAS DELIVERED ME AND I PRAISE HIM

    Psalms 1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Revelation 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come and who shall be able to stand?
