You Learn Something Every Day......

Psalm 7:14-16 KJV

14. Behold he travaileth with iniquity, and has conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
15. He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
16. His mischief shall come down upon his own head, and his violent dealings shall come down upon his own pate. 

So I was just pondering these verses above the other day when all of the sudden the true meaning of them dawned on me. What is being described is for one's enemy to dig a ditch which would serve as a latrine, or place to use the restroom, like and outhouse minus the protective cover. So the enemy has dug this latrine and has attempted to like rig it against you so that you fall into it. However, this is a prayer for a reversal so that it is the enemy that will fall into the pit/latrine instead. Isn't that funny!

St. Jude Prayer

From the back of a novena candle by Luz/Gracia brand:

"Most holy apostle St. Jude, intercessor in all life's difficult problems, grant me employment in a job where I can excel and provide for my family. Help me to make progress and improve my health and abilities. Ask the holy father for all of this on my behalf. I will be ever mindful of this favor and always honor you as my special and powerful patron. Amen."
