Almighty and Everlasting God, I trust in You always. In times of strife, hide me in Your wings and shield me from my enemies. Cause my enemies to run from me. You are my fortress and my walled city – I flee to You. Defending me from those who seek evil, You are the one in whom I take delight. When enemies seek my destruction, You frustrate their plans. Like a still pond or peaceful garden, so my soul rests knowing You are my Father. In You, I trust my life forever. Amen.
