My enemy stalks me like a wild animal seeking to devour its prey.
He oppresses me in my time of need.
He laughs at me when my faith faileth me.
He sends his workers of inequity to use me, rob me, and make me weary.
He waits in the shadows for the right time to pounce on me, to take hold of me, so he can have control of me.
His anger towards me grows more treacherous every moment.
He comes as a friend with sophistry, that I may be absorbed into delusions and depart from the truth.
He works up strife, bitterness and hatred in my company, so that I will be lured into his trap.
He's smooth like a polished stone, cunning like a weasel and wise like a serpent.
Jesus Christ, The Lord is my refuge, my rock, my strength and my salvation.
He is the Son of God, Who created the heavens and earth.
My Savior will hold me up, strengthen me and deliver me from my enemy.
He is majestic, sovereign and life giving. I shall say, "Ha! Ha!" to my enemy and praise and glorify my God.
