Question: Is Psalm 109 a prayer, or a prophesy? In Acts ch 1, an account is given: "And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,) Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus" --- Peter then goes on to quote Psalm 109. --- So then, was David praying for this, or was the Holy Ghost speaking through David pronouncing a judgment determined by the foreknowledge of God? If it is then the prophecy of a judgment determined by God, how is it a petition from David? The same thing I ask about the curse Noah spoke concerning Canaan son of Ham. Was Noah speaking a curse upon him and his children that would remain unremovable for generations to come, even upon those who sinned not according to the same transgression? or rather, was Noah prophesying of future things that would follow after a natural course of things that come to pass in forsaking the laws of God? If you forsake God your descendants will suffer as a result of not being taught the ways and judgements of God. It is a downward slope into sin and bondage. For me these are things to think about.

Surprised you didn't mention Luke 9:54-56. We should pray for salvation but also for justice. Of course there could come a time God will give person over to their sins in which case he will not hear prayers for them.
