January 23 – Evening


Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.

(Romans 12:19)


Dear God,

You are the ultimate judge and avenger. Help me to trust in Your promise that vengeance belongs to You alone and to refrain from seeking revenge in my own strength. Instead, teach me to release my anger and hurt to You, knowing that You will ultimately bring justice in Your perfect timing. Help me to forgive those who have wronged me and to show them the same grace and mercy that You have shown me.

Help me to focus on loving others and leaving justice in Your hands. Give me the strength to overcome bitterness and resentment, and to find peace in knowing that You are in control. Thank You for Your faithfulness and for the comfort of knowing that You will make all things right in the end.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
