A Prayer for Criminals and the Wicked

I have added the following prayer about criminals and the wicked in society to my prayer list,
Give them according to their deeds,
And according to the wickedness of their endeavors;
Give them according to the work of their hands;
Render to them what they deserve.
(Psalms 28:4)
The Lord does not want us to take personal vengeance, but He has said that vengeance belongs to Him. Therefore, we should pray that He does it. Moreover, we want these people to cease their evil, and turn to the Lord. Often, however, they will not do it until they have suffered for their sins.
