For in your arms I shall no longer be a victim of despair and attack from the demonic realm. I, therefore, continue to stand by your promise that you will forever make me free and guard me against any arrow of the enemies which they might want to shoot to capture me again in their stronghold in the mighty name of Jesus. Be gracious to me and keep me. Grant unto me a peace that surpasses human understanding.
