Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good, so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Why pray for your enemy you might ask? We pray our enemy because as stated in our scripture texts they will soon be cut down like the grass and will wither as the green herb. We pray for our enemy because Deuteronomy 32:35 states, "Vengeance is Mine and recompense; their foot shall slip in due time; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things to come hasten upon them.’
God will bring about justice to all evil doers and His justice is swift and complete. God knows the hearts of men and He has His set time to bring all injustice to an end. Yes, God is longsuffering and it appears as though evildoers are getting away with their evil deeds but we are to trust in the Lord for His perfect timing and true justice.
What we are to do is to keep our eyes focused on God. We know God hears and answers prayers. James 5:16 states in part, the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
That being said, we who are being persecuted are to take heed to our scripture text which states, Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
In conclusion, do not worry about the evil man, because his days are numbered. Trust in the Lord and His righteousness. We the persecuted be right ourselves.
Sincere prayers will win any battle.
