For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore, put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground,
and after you have done everything, to stand.
Help me each day to give back to you, the day that you have given to me.
Please fill my soul with love,
Please prepare my heart for action,
And fill my mind with your wisdom,
So that I am equipped to serve you in a world which is both beautiful
But also sad because it is broken by sin and suffering. Amen.
