A few words from King David, the Psalmist ...
the author of Psalm 140
(Any minor alterations, mine.)
"Deliver us, O Lord, from evildoers;
protect us from those who are violent,
who plan evil things in their minds
and stir up wars continually.
They make their tongue sharp as a snake's,
and under their lips is the venom of vipers.
Guard us, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
protect us from the violent
who have planned our downfall ...
Do not grant, O Lord, the desires of the wicked;
do not further their evil plot ...
Let the evil of their lips overwhelm them!
I know that the Lord maintains the cause of the needy,
and executes justice for the poor.
Surely the righteous shall give thanks to your name;
the upright shall live in your presence."
Amen, King David. Amen.
May it be so.
