Prayer for Comfort and Holy Vengeance

Prayer for Comfort and Holy Vengeance | by Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.comHave you been through something awful lately? Do you need comfort? Do you need God to work holy vengeance on your behalf?

I was upset about some things recently, and I went to the Lord about them.

When I did, all of a sudden He gave me words to pray that I had never prayed before. They were words of releasing the wrongs that had been done to me and asking Him to fill every place with His Presence and healing virtue.

As I prayed this prayer (which I wrote down in my journal as He gave it to me), I felt a tremendous release of the burden that had been hurting me. I felt God’s peace settle around me and over me like a thick blanket.

It was wonderful.

So because this prayer for comfort and holy vengeance was so powerful for me, I wanted to share it with you today.

But first, a word about holy vengeance:

We have no problem believing that God wants to comfort us. For most of us, comfort is a very easy thing for which to ask.

But vengeance? Well, that’s something else. We don’t hear too much in the Body of Christ about vengeance. Yet … the Scriptures are full of verses about how God wants to wreak holy vengeance on our behalf.

Oh, His vengeance is not like our vengeance. We have to remember that vengeance belongs to God. Romans 12:19 says:

Start-quoteBeloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord.”

Vengeance belongs to God. It’s NEVER something we should try to obtain for ourselves.

Nevertheless, it is something for which we should pray, for it’s God’s revealed will in Scripture to avenge His people.

Check out these verses:

Start-quoteRest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; do not fret—it only causes harm. For evildoers shall be cut off; but those who wait on the Lord, they shall inherit the earth” (Psalm 37:7-9).

and

“The wicked plots against the just, and gnashes at him with his teeth. The Lord laughs at him, for He sees that his day is coming. The wicked have drawn the sword and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, to slay those who are of upright conduct. Their sword shall enter their own heart, and their bows shall be broken” (Psalm 37:12-15).

Those are just two passages about God’s vengeance, but Scripture is full of them. Study it, and you’ll see.

We just have to understand that God’s vengeance is not like our vengeance.

God’s vengeance is totally good, holy, just, and righteous–not bitter, angry, or motivated by retribution like ours is. Only He is capable of avenging us in a holy way. That’s why we should leave it to Him. 🙂

So, are you ready to pray for comfort and holy vengeance? Here’s the prayer the Lord gave me:

“Father God, in Jesus’ name, I thank You today for hearing my prayer. Thank You for seeing all things that concern me and my life, and thank You for always taking care of me.

Father, I need healing for my heart right now. I need Your help, too. So Abba Father, right now, I’m going to cast all my cares on You. I’m choosing not to be anxious, but instead, in everything–with prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, I choose to make my requests known to You.

And Father, I ask in Jesus’ name that, according to Your promise, Your peace which passes all understanding would guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus. Let Your peace settle over me like a blanket, Father, and I pray that the Holy Spirit would comfort me. Thank You, Abba.

So Father God, I lift up the hurt of my heart to You right now, and I ask You to heal me.

Father, for every place that I have been abandoned, I ask that You would show Yourself to still be with me; that Your glory would be my rearguard, my front-guard, my guard on every side.

For every place I’ve ever been despised or forsaken, I ask that You would come in and help me to know that I’m cherished by You. Help me to feel Your love and watchcare over me.

For every place I’ve been betrayed, Abba, I pray: show Yourself more loyal to me, and more faithful, than I’ve ever seen before. Help me to see Your loyalty and Your faithfulness manifest in my life in tangible ways.

For every place I’ve been hurt, show Yourself to me to be my Healer and Healing.

For every place I’ve been demeaned, show me how valuable I am in Your sight.

Father, I ask that for every curse that’s been spoken against me, for every foul thing that’s been said about me, every evil thing that’s been plotted against me, You would turn it around and work it out for my good.

Father, for every place I’ve been dishonored, stick up for me personally. I call on You, Holy Spirit, as my Attorney, Paraclete, Helper, Advocate, Standby, and Defender. Jesus, I call on You as my Righteousness and my Intercessor. Get me justice from my adversaries, and save me from those who have risen up against me.

For every place I’ve lost my joy, give me double joy. Restore the joy of my salvation, in Jesus’ name.

Lord, Your Word says (Psalm 37:15) that the sword of the wicked shall enter their own heart, and their bows shall be broken. So remove their swords and arrows from my back and from my heart, O God, and let their swords and the Sword of Your Word enter their own heart in a good and holy way, as only You can do, and let their bows be broken. Heal every wound in my body, in my soul, and in my spirit that they have inflicted, Lord; and convict them for the sake of Jesus.

Father God, I lift up my enemies to You. Your Word says we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the evil one. Father, remove every evil influence from my enemies. Bring them into holiness, godliness, righteousness, and purity in every way. Convict them of their sin for the sake of Jesus, and glorify Your own name in them.

Father God, I ask in Jesus’ name that You’d remove every trace of this attack from my life other than the good You have brought from it.

Where there has been shame, remove it from me completely and give me twofold recompense. Where dishonor has been inflicted or placed upon me, remove it and clothe me with double honor instead. Where any damage has been done at all, work a great healing in my life and bring me to a higher level than I’ve ever been before.

Help me, Father. I can’t bear this alone.

I lay it at Your feet, casting all my burdens on You, and I’m believing You to sustain me. Please bless me and reward me for the persecution I’ve been through. Give me the Kingdom of Heaven according to Your Word.

Thank You, Father. Thank You for always watching over Your Word to perform it. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer, for I pray according to Your Word. I give You all the glory, and I thank You for comforting and healing me.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Beloveds, we serve a good, good Father. No matter what you’ve been through, He sees. He knows. AND HE CARES.

Ask Him to comfort you and avenge you today, and keep clean hands and a pure heart before Him while He does. If you will, you will see Him move powerfully on your behalf–for He always watches over His Word to perform it.

    1. You’re welcome. I pray Papa would comfort you this very moment, and work on your behalf and give you peace as you give your problems to Him, sister!

      1. Thank you Abba for pouring out your justice & hope. You are always good and righteous you are all together. These prayers minister to me and give me language for what the terrible injustices I have experienced in life. He is good to me 👍

        1. Thank you. I was spiritually attacked today at a new place of employment and felt blindsided, betrayed, and hurt. I am a special education teacher. This prayer has helped me today. God bless you.

    2. Maria T Rizzi says:

      Good Morning Jamie, thank you soooo much for posting this prayer. I recently went through a very painful event that was inflicted upon me through a Christian woman who I thought was a friend. Not to go into the situation, I was always being mistreated verbally and emotionally by her, and because I was staying under her roof, I was being respectful of that, so I didn’t say anything to her at first. Over the 5 months of staying there, things began to escalate and I couldn’t tolerate it any longer, as it was affecting my health. She would do these things through text messages and they continued to get worse. I eventually left her home, but I did write her an email in reply to all of her abusive words, and went to seek the wisdom of my Pastor, who prayed with me to remove the knives, of words curses from my back. I have released her and the entire situation over to God and have been trying very hard NOT to walk in unforgiveness towards her. I have been asking God to help me to overcome the anger I was feeling towards her. Your prayer has spoken the words that I wasn’t able to find in my heart, due to the mix of emotions I have been feeling. I said the prayer and meant it from my heart, and I just release her completely into God’s hands, to do what ONLY He can do and that is to bring HOLY vengeance, to reward me for the persecution I have endured in all of this. Thank you and God bless you always, Love in Christ Jesus, Maria

      1. Maria, I’m sorry you went through that but I am thankful this prayer helped. It is a beautiful thing when Papa God steps in and fights on your behalf, because the reward He brings always gives you increased anointing, increased intimacy with Him, increased favor and blessing. If only we can just respond rightly and past the test, so that He can reward us!

      2. Thanks so much. Jamie. This prayer is really for me.

        Stella

    3. Christopher Mendez says:

      Thankyou Sop much Jaime. This prayer hit the mark in my life right now. The Lord bless you for your committed faithfulness to our King. I really needed this word. 💖

    4. I believe and receive this word today over my court case. Thank you father for vindicating and restoring me!! Thank you Jamie for your blessed ministry!

  2. Ann Johnstone says:

    Thank you so much Jamie. I really took your earlier word concerning spiritual seasons to heart, determined that I wouldn’t waste a day in order to have increased intimacy with God over the following six weeks leading up to October 3-4. So what happened?

    Well, firstly I had four weeks of serious illness, when I was too weak to do anything much. I finally recovered from that, only to be attacked spiritually, as Satan took the word God gave me years ago and threw it back in my face, ridiculing me in the process. I have just now prayed the prayer you gave us today, and asked God to do what I cannot do as I am both physically exhausted and spiritually drained.

    1. Ann, I’m very sorry you’ve been through such a tough time, but I know our Papa will watch over His Word to perform it! He hears and answers. I just stopped and prayed for you. Much love and big hugs to you today.

      1. Ann Johnstone says:

        Thank you so much Jamie. I was just about to go to bed when I noticed your message. Your love and prayers mean a great deal to me. What’s that saying? “It’s always darkest before the dawn.”

  3. NdleleniE. says:

    Hi Jamie, this is just so powerful that i am feeling so relieved to know that after that is happening around me and the world at large, is seen and God will comfort and vengeance for me. Bless them because they don’t know what they doing. This is not our battle but Yeshua’s. Stay blessed sister!

    1. Yes, it sure is His! But He is our Salvation, and He will help us, sustain us, and be the Strength of our life. 🙂 Amen!

  4. This is so powerful and super relevant to what I am going through at work. It’s like every line of this prayer was carved out for me. Once again, so thankful to Papa God for you and all the wisdom he is imparting you.

    1. This blog is so inspiring to me, I am so greatful to God for you being a wonderful profetic women of God. You really did make my day, thank you for being an obidient servent of God. This is so strong, and powerful, and filled with Gods word. As I continue to grow in the word of God, I have learned so much from you. So thank you so much Jamie, I will continue to read your wonderful blog.

  5. Rachael Naidoo says:

    thank you for this encouraged prayer ..I feel good after I prayed …I was feeling so depressed … God Bless you Jamie.

  6. Rebecca L Jones says:

    I have always remembered that vengeance was His. I was just telling my mother how people ” Judas ” you. It takes grace to pray for them and forgive, praying blankets of peace over us.

  7. Hi Jamie, I really need you to believe with me in prayer. I really want a new backpack for school so could you just agree with me in prayer?

  8. Geri Fletcher says:

    I started getting all weepy right at the beginning. You are so precious & have Papa God’s heart. Thank you Jamie for being so open to Holy Spirit & ministering to everyone who has the privilege of reading & participating in what you have written from your heart. Thank you & know you are loved so much by Papa God.

    1. Thank you for that encouraging word, Geri. I cried through this prayer too. Seems like Papa knows just how to touch us and make all things new every time we’re hurting, doesn’t He?!

  9. This is so on the mark, every message I have gotten from you this week, it has been quite a week. Thank you so much for this prayer boy do I need it. God bless you sister.

  10. Rafael Somma says:

    Thank you for this, it’s much appreciated!

  11. God bless you sis Jamie. Thank you for your messages always on time. Please Jamie I need to ask question please. Before I gave my life to Christ, I was abused and I did it back to someone. Which I am not proud of myself, now I see God using me, showing me thing. I now felt ashamed and confused, should I tell people what I did.

    1. Hi Comfort. I don’t know how to answer that question, because I don’t know your situation. But I know the Holy Spirit will show you what to do as you pray. I will pray for you to have wisdom.

  12. So needed Jamie…praying this tonight! A million thank you’s to you – oh that each one were a dollar! When i receive your messages, prophecies, updates, exhortations, teachings and prayers, i am grateful for your life, and i pray for you. For your strength, health encouraged heart, covering and protection – but always linger on funding/provision for you. Don’t know why…i know it’s not all about money for you – you give and have sacrificed so much. But, i always find my prayers for you hovering there. As if i keep whacking away at an enormous pinata in the spirit to crack it open over your head and rain down all that you need to completely leave the corporate-career world and turn-up the volume on all that Abba has placed in you. (totally bizarre, but that is the picture that just came to mind) i truly have such an expectation of this for you…imagining it makes me giggle…can’t wait for your update email announcing it. It’s gonna be super SWEET!
    This verse came on my heart as i was typing…
    Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32

    1. Thank you, friend. I need all of the above, and I believe that word! Amen! May Papa bless you exceedingly today as well.

  14. Hello Jamie, Me and My sister had been through some problems with some humans before in our past and recently was involved in a problem . A supposely friend of our nephew was invited to an unexpected group chat. We were just to meet their friends but he starts being rude and disrespectful to us even though he don’t know us and us not doing anything. “Jiving” even though it didn’t have an affect on us. It really irritated us how rude he was. He was saying harsh words to us for no reason. We spoke some back and left the chat and blocked him. We was angry but I was more furious and wanted to meet him in person and hurt him. I had other plans but I thought what God and Jesus would want me to do so I looked for prayers, prayers for veneagance and I came across yours. Me and My sister read it together and it really made us feel better and calm and helped me remember not do what the devil would want like what he did. Thank You, we really needed it.

  15. Dana Young says:

    1. My pleasure. Thank you for reading, Dana! May you be filled with comfort and healing virtue from the God of all comfort, this very day! In Jesus’ name!

  16. Powerful prayer. I feel like a new person. Thank you Lord

  17. Jamie, your prayer has just helped me heal from a most resent hurt (business agreement not honoured) that was very hard to deal with. I have been trying to forgive and to forget bit kept reminded on social media. I have let go because God is fighting for me. I like the part of holy vengeance.

    Regards,
    Makgomo (South Africa)

  18. Jamie,
    I am so blessed and lifted reading this prayer and applying it to my current situation. At 40yrs, I ve rejected many suitors that came my way but for the only one I wholeheartedly accepted 6months ago. Sadly, I ve been through unimaginable verbal abuse and accusations for things I know nothing about. I accepted him even with serious opposition from some of my family members. As a result, I have been a subject of discussion by persons I truly love and care for. All of these broke my heart.
    Today, my Christian aunt preached that I forgive all those who hurt me so as to allow God a place in my heart. I got angry because I didn’t understand what I needed to do to show I already forgave them but need to stay away from their drama. Yet I wanted God to take care of it all for me but feel so weak to pray right now.
    I thank God for d privilege of finding this prayer which already gave me strength and I intend to pray for with it at midnight and always. I ve been kind and open to people but always got brutally betrayed by same people. It hurts but I am redeemed. God will surely avenge my worries.

  19. Kay Brown says:

  23. Jennifer Swan bivins says:

    Wow, what an awesome wonderful and powerful prayer! I needed this SO much! Thank you for this ?

  24. It was a wonderful prayer, it touched me deeply in the heart. God bless you.

  25. Shoshana Merrick says:

    Thank you, I haven’t prayed with such passion in a long time. In fact, the last time I prayed like that was to order demons out of our house.
    I’ve struggled to forgive an alcoholic-ex who abused and left me with nothing (but my salvation). I’ve had moments of forgiveness, but I’m struggling so much to find work at 55 that I wrestled with “how do I ask for God’s vengeance”, without harboring hatred and bitterness over the losses?
    Cried like a baby when I said this prayer, but I’ve been so ashamed of my anger and caring too much of the things of this world. Yet I still have to live in the world, and it’s been really hard to shake off the loss and regroup.

  26. Thank you I’ve been praying this everyday ! It has helped me so much 🙂

  27. I have been going through a very rough time for over 2 years, that has snowballed into every aspect of my life. It has truly been a “season of Job”. I am seeing God cleanse me of what He wants, but it is so hard to shake that a slew of people have consistently harmed me physically and financially. I am left with “no further recourse”….but I feel strongly that God will come through. I needed to read this post today, so thank you for being an encouraging mouth piece. It is no accident that I stumbled upon this writing and prayer. A prayer that I could not have ever constructed myself at this point. God bless you.

  28. Nicole Horton says:

    Thank you for this prayer,,, I have been so bitter for the last 20 years from a guy that verbally abused me and shamed me in front of the whole neighorhood… Also other guys after him… I want to let go of this unforgiveness so badly… I will repeat this prayer

  29. Faith Neary says:

    My daughter announced her engagement at the same time my father was put into hospice care. The wedding was for three months away. She has known the boy only a couple months. She was still in another relationship when she got engaged. My husband and I told her we could not support a wedding that was in three months. My dad was given 2 to 12 weeks of life at that time. The boys mother planned the whole wedding and I was left out while caring for my father. And my daughter would not consider postponing it so we can be a part of it. There’s quite a bit of manipulation going on with in that other family. And my daughter goes along to get along. She was so convicted of her present behavior that she moved out and moved in with him and the mother. This is all while she was still with her another boyfriend. Within five days they were engaged and she wanted to share it with me while I took my daddy to the hospital. I put her off because I couldn’t deal with what she wanted while I was excepting the fact that my dad would be leaving soon forever. Her wedding is this Saturday and she did not invite any family from her dad side and she only invited a few from my side and none of our friends have been invited because in my heart of hearts I know this is not right this is not God’s will. We have been praying that God would turn her back to him. And life has been easy for her. She doesn’t see a need for God right now. Maybe she does now because this has been so difficult and there have been so many tears shed.
    Thank you for posting your prayer. I do feel very offended and hurt by the action of the mother-in-law and my daughter. The boy has just been rude and contentious with me and my husband. We’ve tried in vain humbly to share our concerns and reasons for putting on breaks during this time. And their only response from them is that is your choice, we’re not changing the date. There is more to this story, but the main idea is my child is not walking with God.

  30. Thank you Jaime for posting this prayer.
    I am going through some problems and those people are evil and cunning. They are already in their sixties, and I’m only in my twenties. I was so stuck, Everyday with threats and verbally abuse. They even come my house to Harass me. I need god now before it gets worse. Thank you and god bless you 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

    Jamie, thank you for sending this word and prayer out today.
    I have been struggling with past insults, shame, humiliation and a host of things that were done to me by the people I loved and helped.
    Just this morning, I ask talking to the Lord to address the insults, i.e. the sting each time I recall, and opened my email to see this. Papa is really a good, good Father!

    God bless you for being a blessing to His bride.
    Shalom.

  36. Dear Jaime, last night I prayed about times I’ve been discriminated against, not taken seriously, put down, called names, etc. I asked for St Therese’s intercession and this morning I found this email from you. I was very stressed and anxious earlier this week. Your prayer was just right for what I had been feeling and I really needed to give it to God and stop feeling anxious. You are so wise to advise not to take vengeance on people for God is the only one who judges. Thank you for your ministry and your prayers.

  37. Maika Kamikamica says:

  39. Jamie ALWAYS perfect timing for a perfect word!!! Thank you!!! Sheri from Michigan

  40. Ooh God my father. Thank you so much for this.

Thank you so much. May God bless you for speaking to my heart. He is indeed a good good father.

  43. Nadia Slater says:

    Good day, jamie, I truly appreciate your help and support, you just know the word to send to me, I needed that word today, thank you for your faithfulness to your ministry.🙏❤️

  44. Thank you ABBA FATHER and Thank you JAMIE 🙏🏾😊🤍😇.. .*🌻TAKE CARE🌻*.

  45. I periodically say prayers out loud like from others who have written them, but your prayer here, struck a nerve I did not know was so sensitive. It was on joy. “ For every place I’ve lost my joy, give me double joy. Restore the joy of my salvation, in Jesus’ name”.
    I will have to pray more on this and ask the Holy Spirit more on why this affected me.
    Thanks for sharing this prayer. Sometimes you don’t realize you need to hear it until you repeat it out loud, and that it leads to a deeper self discovery that God nudges you toward.

  46. Ursula Norfleet says:

    Thank you. This was right on time. I am in a warfare with my soon to be ex husband and one of the women he committed adultery with. My heart was broken and I was broken but Abba Father put me back together . I have made mistakes on this journey. But my God is real and He loves me. You are an amazing woman of God. Keep going! You have helped so many people. God bless you and your family. Please keep me and my children in your prayers.

  47. Thank you, my sister in Christ, for this wonderful prayer. I have had a series of extremely traumatic events happened to me, and the great thing is I know God is speaking to you and thus to us. Thank you for being so willing to have God use you.

    I’d love it if you would pray for me. Trauma is something I know Jehovah Jirah can heal and mend. For His glory. For He is holy, good and wants His children to trust Him.

    Much love in Him…

  48. Thank you Jamie for this heartfelt prayer! I felt this deep in my spirit and received it as a true message to me from God. May God continue to bless you as your spread His word and draw others to Christ. May God continue to bless all that you touch and create in Jesus name. Thanks again!

  49. Bantshang says:

    Hie Jamie! Thank you for the word of comfort and holy vegence. I really need comfort and holy vegnce in my life. For years I have lived under repeatative circumstances of reproaches, abuse, insults and many others. I thank the Lord for His comfort and holy vegence over my life and everything that’s concerns me.
