Psalm 140 sums up most earnest prayer

Psalm 140—it helps to know someone else has been through my situation and was able to write poetry about it later. And, it really helps to know God takes these kinds of problems seriously.

My most earnest prayers mirror this completely, and it asks for everything—everything—I need right now:

Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
Preserve me from violent men
Who have proposed to trip up my feet. The proud have hidden a trap for, and cords;
They have spread a net by the wayside;
They have set snares for me.

I said to the Lord, "You are my God;
Give ear, O Lord, to the voice of my supplications.
O God the lOrd, the strength of my salvation,
You have covered my head in the day of battle.
Do not grant, O Lord, the desires of the wicked;
Do not promote his evil device, that they not be exalted.

New American Standard Bible

4Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked;
         Preserve me from violent men
         Who have purposed to trip up my feet.5The proud have hidden a trap for me, and cords;
         They have spread a net by the wayside;
         They have set snares for me.
Selah.
6I said to the LORD, “You are my God;
         Give ear, O LORD, to the voice of my supplications.
7“O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
         You have covered my head in the day of battle.
8“Do not grant, O LORD, the desires of the wicked;
         Do not promote his evil device, that they not be exalted.
Selah.
9“As for the head of those who surround me,
         May the mischief of their lips cover them.
10“May burning coals fall upon them;
         May they be cast into the fire,
         Into deep pits from which they cannot rise.
11“May a slanderer not be established in the earth;
         May evil hunt the violent man speedily.”
12I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted
         And justice for the poor.
13Surely the righteous will give thanks to Your name;
         The upright will dwell in Your presence.

Annotations
4,5Humans collaborating with demons, who have been violent, as well, are planning even more violence, and have otherwise made my demise their goal (hear the gang-stalkers' mandate, "We prolong peoples' inevitable demise," in Gang-stalkers warned of upcoming violence, death).

6I feel the need to explicity state to God that my allegiances lie with him—and not to Satan. On a daily basis, that means being cognizant of where the devil is at work in my life and the lives of others, and what work I am doing that it asked of by God. Of course, as is the case in this Psalms, I indicate to God that he is my God by asking Him to provide for my needs.

7My head could use some more covering (read Skull disfigured in just two days by demons); but, let me assure you that things could be way worse, as the limit of what these demons and their human collaborators can do has not been reached. They are adept at medical science, and they use their ability to enter the body without leaving a trace on the skin to full effect.

8The Voices Demons desire acceptance within the community of the Bay Area, and seek this by first attempting to gain validation for what they do, i.e., torture. They devised a way to gain at least complicity and/or participation of people by portraying their victims as persons deserving of their well-honed craft that is mental and physical torture. This has several advantages for them, such as isolating their victim from society in order to better control the victim's external and internal perceptions; but, as to their goal of integration, it's just another technique of torture intended to cause mental and emotional harm to the victim, and to expand their arsenal of weapons in their torture war chest via the means by which a human can harm another. Why would I ask God then for help with this, when working with demons is clearly a choice that He allows humans to make? The reason is simple: many people do not understand what it is they are working with. The Voices Demons, for example, are always the first to introduce themselves to a new person because they can't be seen. Invisibility allows them to say that they are whoever they are good enough to pretend to be, such as an angel. Since they can read minds, they know what a given individual's idea of an angel would be, and can meet those expectations handily. Some people in San Jose think they are doing good by being bad to "bad" people.

9Slander is a common tactic with gang-stalkers, a group of demon-led criminals, who target selected individuals as part of the demons' effort to cull society. I pray not for protection against the fallout from slander—that's what keeps this problem alive, and a solution possible—rather, I pray that those who are being lied to do not commit acts for which someday they will feel guilt or remorse.
