Remember this, O LORD, how the enemy scoffs, and a foolish people reviles your name. Do not deliver the soul of your dove to the wild beasts; do not forget the life of your poor forever. Have regard for the covenant, for the dark places of the land are full of the habitations of violence. Let not the downtrodden turn back in shame; let the poor and needy praise your name. Arise, O God, defend your cause; remember how the foolish scoff at you all the day! Do not forget the clamor of your foes, the uproar of those who rise against you, which goes up continually!
Remember Your people, LORD, cover us from those minions of the Evil One who preach another gospel. Strengthen Your Church! Build up your Body! Fill us with Your Spirit to stand strong and resist the devil so that he will flee from us. Help us to remember that when we seek You, You will be found.
