    I think psalm 35 is absolutely the right bible verse for me at this time in my life. I am experiencing a lot of issues on my job from people that is so unhappy to see me keep my employment. They are spreading lies, gossiping about a lot of thing that is untrue. I got upset few days ago and had an argument with one of them and now i am very afraid that i am going to lose my job. Please pray for me

    I love psalm 35 bcos it gives me comfort and assurance to know that God is alos a God of vengeance .sometimes people take advantage of our emotions,our gestures they are taken for granted .Even during trials those you help rise against you to persecute you but always have the faith and assurance that God will help and deliver us through every trial and persecution

    Every psalms in the Bible is a strong prayer words that should not be tampered with. In situations and difficulties u are going through there is a psalmist prayer for it. Psalm 35 is an exceptional psalm in the time of trouble or any problem that u are going through, it covers it. Brethrens, let remain faithful in prayers and let the words if God fight our battle. If the words of God will be depening in your heart, u will not sin against him, it will be sharper than two edges sword and it will be a consuming fire for your enemies. The words will go without returning void, it must accomplish what its been sent for. I have gone through alot in life and still going through alot but still believe that one day that God will break the padlock that is locking my destiny, and tear off the clothes of cloud that is covering my break through. All in the name of Jesus.
