verse of the moment — psalm 9.

17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.

I am unsure about other denominations, but in Orthodoxy the Book of Psalms is sometimes used as a prayer book.  For instance, Psalm 9, from which the above two verses are taken, can be used as a prayer of protection against demons that bother one during the day or during the night.  With nightmares, for example.

It really helps.  Try it, if you’re plagued by nightmares during night-time, or tormenting thoughts during the day.  I’ve been reading it before bed every night for quite a while, but stopped for the week when mother was in hospital.  I think I am going to resume reading this (and, with hope, other prayers) before bed every night.
