For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His sukkah (home), conceal me in the shelter of His tent, and set me high upon a rock – Psalm 27:5
This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him and saved him out of all his troubles – Psalm 34:6
Justice belongs to our King who just has a way of working things out on your behalf, if you surrender to Him and follow His instruction. Evidence of this is in the book of Esther (Esther 7:10), where Haman ended up being hung on the very same gallows he prepared for Mordecai, or in the story of Jehoshaphat (2 Chronicles 20) and Gideon’s armies, where the enemy armies imploded and wiped themselves out in the end. Only God can orchestrate that and He is a strategic God. Wait for the Holy Spirit to give you strategy. It is also way more beneficial not to avenge yourself, but instead forgive, release them to your ABBA Father, who is your fierce protector and vindicator. Let Him show you what He can do while you remain in your rest.
Lord, You are Jehovah Sabaoth – the Lord of Hosts. I thank you that You are my/our protector and You will battle for me/us (1 Samuel 1:3). I pray Psalm 91 as a supernatural hedge of protection around myself, my family and my circumstances and I thank you that the battle belongs to You Lord (1 Samuel 17:47).
You are also Jehovah Tsidkenu – the Righteous One who oversees the house of the wicked and casts them down to ruin (Proverbs 21:12). As the Righteous Judge (Psalm 7:11) you alone can bring justice to me. I pray Psalm 7 as a prayer of justice over myself and my circumstances that you will rise in your anger, O Lord and stand against the fury of my enemies to deliver me.
I acknowledge that our war is not against flesh and blood, and I forgive my enemies and all who have falsely accused or plotted against me. Lord I thank you that no weapon fashioned against me shall prosper and I condemn every tongue that rises up in judgment against me as your servant (Isaiah 54:17). Abba I ask that You would give back the days the locusts have eaten (Joel 2:25) and restore what the enemy has stolen from me (Deuteronomy 30:3).
You are my strong tower. I run into You and am saved (Proverbs 18:10), and thank you that I can confidently say Adonai is my portion and my cup. You cast my lot. My boundary lines fall in pleasant places – surely my heritage is beautiful (Psalm 16: 5-6).
I praise you for the work you are doing behind the scenes of my life as I release it all to You and seek Your face. I praise You for restoring the relationships and opportunities lost as I lay it all at your feet and I ask that you loose your angels on my/our behalf to battle for us, minister to us and retrieve all that was stolen seven times according to Proverbs 6:31. Thank You for Your justice, You are my SHALOM. Amen
Do not be anxious about anything – but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the Shalom of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Messiah Yeshua – Philippians 4:6-7 (also see our prayer of petition template)
But let justice roll like water and righteousness like an ever-flowing torrent – Amos 5:24
Surely I trust that I will see the goodness of Adonai in the land of the living – Psalm 27:13
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not wage war according to the flesh – 2 Corinthians 10:3
Days are soon coming, declares Adonai, when I will punish all who are circumcised and yet uncircumcised – Jeremiah 9:24
Who has known the mind of Adonai, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Messiah – 1 Corinthians 2:16
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges My name. He will call on Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honour him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation” – Psalm 91:1-16
The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of His unfailing love – Psalm 33:5
Truly God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert justice – Job 34:12

But with righteousness and justice shall He judge the poor and decide with fairness for the meek, the poor, and the downtrodden of the earth; and He shall smite the earth and the oppressor with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked – Isaiah 11:4
Then in mercy and loving kindness shall a throne be established and One shall sit upon it in truth and faithfulness in the tent of David, judging and seeking justice and being swift to do righteousness.” – Isaiah 16:5
God your God will restore everything you lost; He’ll have compassion on you; He’ll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered – Deuteronomy 30:3
