O God, do not keep silence; do not hold your peace or be still, O God! Even now your enemies are in tumult; those who hate you have raised their heads. Psalm 83:1–2

Zechariah said, “With a solemn oath the Lord God of Israel promised to rescue us from our enemies and allow us to serve him without fear, all the days of our life.” Luke 1:73–75 (GNT)

Redeemer and Friend, all thanks and praise are due to you for rescuing us from certain death because of our sins. You have visited us and redeemed us and secured a place for us. Come, Lord Jesus! Amen.
