"Make a show of how much you love me
so the bullies who hate me will stand there slack-jawed,
As you, God, gently and powerfully put me back on my feet." - Psalm 86:16-17
His prayer is not so much that the bullies are physically assaulted, but rather that God's love is shown to be so overwhelming that all they can do is stand with their mouths wide open in amazement. The way that God restores David's troubled life will prove to be such a testimony that it will shut up the religious bullies for good.
Living in Grace
