How do I apply a Psalm like Psalm 64 to modern times and daily life?

I am assuming this Psalm and others like it were written in times of war or when David was fleeing for his life. How do I read these and apply them to my rather peaceful life?

Am I to read it that the "wicked" and "evildoers" and "enemy" are non-believers who demand and push a non-Biblical lifestyle on others or people who persecute (I use this word very loosely, I am in no way truly persecuted beyond some hurtful words) me and the Church?

If so, how does this work together with loving my enemies?
