A litany for the protection of our diocese from Psalm 64:1-5,10 from 3/20/2006

Hear our voice, O God, in our meditation;
Preserve our lives from fear of the enemy.
     Hear our voice, O God.
Hide us from the secret plots of the wicked,
     Hear our voice, O God.
From the rebellion of the workers of iniquity,
     Hear our voice, O God.
Hide us from those who sharpen their tongue like a sword,
     Hear our voice, O God.
From those who bend their bows to shoot their arrows--bitter words,
     Hear our voice, O God.
Hide us from those who shoot in secret at the blameless;
     Hear our voice, O God.
From those who suddenly shoot at us and do not fear.
     Hear our voice, O God.
Hide us from those who encourage themselves in an evil matter;
     Hear our voice, O God.
From those who talk of laying snares secretly;
     Hear our voice, O God.
Hide us from those who say, "Who will see us?"
     Hear our voice, O God.
The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and trust in Him.
     We are glad in and trust in you, O LORD.
And all the upright in heart shall glory.

     Glory to you, O LORD.
