OH LORD PLEASE EMPOWER YOUR CHILDREN

Oh Lord, please empower Your children in our daily wrestle against the powers of evil — even at the peril of our lives.

Evil men and pretenders abound,
Oh Lord empower Your people!
Wolves in sheep clothing have infiltrated our ranks,
Oh Lord empower Your people!
The Gospel of Your holy Son Jesus is  perverted for selfish gain,
Oh Lord empower Your people!
Wicked men have sold themselves to be used by the wicked one against our lives,
Oh Lord empower Your people!
They lay snares for our feet and seek to trap us with wit and cunning,
Oh Lord empower Your people!
Oh Lord grant us utterance and a wisdom which our adversaries can neither gainsay nor resist,
Oh Lord empower Your people!
Oh Lord grant that Your Word will come forth with power and conviction and much assurance,
Oh Lord empower Your people!
Oh Lord grant that with boldness we will declare your truth without fear or favour,
Oh Lord empower Your people!
Oh Lord grant that we may be true to your Word all the days of our lives,
Oh Lord empower Your people!
For we can do nothing against the Truth,
Oh Lord empower Your people!
Oh Lord grant that we’ll remain faithful even in the face of adversity,
Oh Lord empower Your people!
Oh Lord grant that we’ll love You more than our lives — even unto death,
Oh Lord empower Your people!
Trusting You that we’ll persevere to the end with all the Saints,
Oh Lord empower Your Children!
Amen!
