Behold, God is my | helper;*
  the Lord is the upholder | of my life.
He will return the evil to my | enemies;*
  in your faithfulness put an | end to them.
O God, save me, | by your name,*
  and vindicate me | by your might.
O God, | hear my prayer;*
  give ear to the words | of my mouth.
For strangers have risen against me; ruthless men | seek my life;*
  they do not set God be- | fore themselves.
For he has delivered me from every | trouble,*
  and my eye has looked in triumph on my | enemies.
Glory be to the Father and | to the Son*
  and to the Holy | Spirit;
as it was in the be- | ginning,*
  is now, and will be forever. | Amen.

Behold, God is my | helper;*
  the Lord is the upholder | of my life.
He will return the evil to my | enemies;*
  in your faithfulness put an | end to them.


Collect of the Day


  Let Your merciful ears, O Lord, be open to the prayers of Your humble servants; and that they may obtain their petitions, make them to ask such things as shall please You; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
