'Stay sober and alert.
Your opponent the devil is prowling like a roaring lion
looking for someone to devour.
Resist him, solid in your faith,
realizing that the brotherhood of believers
is undergoing the same sufferings throughout the world.
The God of all grace,
Who called you to His everlasting glory in Christ, will Himself
restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish those who have suffered a little while.
Dominion be His throughout the ages! Amen.'
1 Peter 5:8-11
