Exodus 17:15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Moshe built an altar, called it Adonai Nissi [Adonai is my banner/miracle], and said, “Because their hand was against the throne of Yah, Adonai will fight ‘Amalek generation after generation.”

Esther 9:24-25 Complete Jewish Bible

because Haman the son of Hamdata the Agagi, the enemy of the Jews, had plotted against the Jews to destroy them and had thrown pur (that is, “cast lots”) to crush and destroy them; but when Ester came before the king, he ordered by letters that [Haman’s] wicked scheme, which he had plotted against the Jews, should recoil on his own head, and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows.

Our Father in heaven,

You are a righteous and holy God.  We cannot see men’s hearts as You do, but we know that the spirit of Amalek has long contended against Your chosen people.  If there are forces of Amalek trying to influence the election of a new government in Israel next week, let their wicked schemes recoil on their own heads. Amen.

Isaiah 42:1-3 (ESV)
Behold my servant, whom I uphold,
my chosen, in whom my soul delights;
I have put my Spirit upon him;
he will bring forth justice to the nations. . . .
a bruised reed he will not break,
and a faintly burning wick he will not quench;
he will faithfully bring forth justice.

Sing to the Lord a new song, Church of England!
Declare his praise throughout the land.
The Lord goes out like a mighty man,
like a man of war he stirs up his zeal;
he cries out, he shouts aloud,
he shows himself mighty against his foes.
