1 Peter 5:7-9
New Living Translation (NLT)
7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
8 Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.
9 Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.
The lion is on the prowl, no one is safe
He lays in wait, for you to come
In the brush he sits, with muscles rippling
Like the beating, of some death drum
Tense and ready, he prepares to pounce
His heart is pounding, his claws engarde
His breathing heavy, his nostrils flared
He’ll take your life, without regard
When you meet, eyes locked in contact
Do not look away, nor even blink
If he senses fear, the slightest inkling
He’ll be upon you, quick as a wink
Awesome power, stands before you
You’re no match, alone you’ll die
His mighty roar, is meant to scare you
Let your faith, be your reply
Then he’ll fall, before you cringing
No more the tyrant, now in chains
The Prince of Darkness, on knees now bending
The King of Kings, our friend now reigns
