All the Weapons of the Kingdom

August 18, 2014

Merciful God,

Giver of all joy, salvation and freedom:

Be our refuge and shelter, keeping
The deeds of the Adversary at bay
And arming us with all the
Weapons of the Kingdom:
Love, joy, peace,
Patience, selflessness, neighborliness,
Hospitality, turning-the-other-cheek,
Forgiveness, mercy, service, grace,
And hope.

With these the Kingdom will
Never be defeated, but
Death and sin will.

Amen

Thomas

  1. Thank you, Thomas, for sharing this. I am up early because I can’t sleep. I am facing a day that is terrifying. Just surfing some of my “favorite” links and happened across this prayer. I am arming myself with the words and hanging on to hope as best I can. Blessings to you.
