Deus in Adjutorium meum intende, domine ad adjuvandum me festina.

Over and over on our beads as part of ejaculatory prayer. It's the oldest ejaculatory prayer there is. Older than the Jesus prayer. Beautiful.

What does it mean?  How far does it go back?

Oh God come to my assistance, Oh Lord make haste to help me (that's one translation).

How far I am not certain/can't remember. But my superior preached on it and researched the hell out of it. So I'm taking it on his authority.

It goes back to the time of the Desert Fathers.

These two books discuss it to some length.
