Prayer for Protection from Enemies
Psalm 64:1 Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint; preserve my life from dread of the enemy,
Psalm 64:2 hide me from the secret plots of the wicked, from the scheming of evildoers,
Psalm 64:3 who whet their tongues like swords, who aim bitter words like arrows,
Psalm 64:4 shooting from ambush at the blameless, shooting at him suddenly and without fear.
Psalm 64:5 They hold fast to their evil purpose; they talk of laying snares secretly, thinking, “Who can see us?
Psalm 64:6 Who can search out our crimes? We have thought out a cunningly conceived plot.” For the inward mind and heart of a man are deep!
Psalm 64:7 But God will shoot his arrow at them; they will be wounded suddenly.
Psalm 64:8 Because of their tongue he will bring them to ruin; all who see them will wag their heads.
Psalm 64:9 Then all men will fear; they will tell what God has wrought, and ponder what he has done.
Psalm 64:10 Let the righteous rejoice in the LORD, and take refuge in him Let all the upright in heart glory!
