    Psalm 109 does pertain to praying for the punishment of the wicked and is completely Biblical, regardless of your relationship or feelings about/with that wicked person. Peter quotes both Psalm 69 and 109 in Acts 1:20. This prayer clearly places the matter in the hands of our Just and Holy God. When you pray "Thy Kingdom Come" this includes the destruction of the wicked.
