The war of Forces waxes strong,
The world is not the only field,

Our Father in heaven, thank you for the blessings of this day. You renew your goodness over us constantly.
Bless our loved ones far away from us, and draw them near to you.
Make us sensitive to wrongs in the world, especially to the greatest of these: rebellion against your will, ignorance of your Word.
We put ourselves in your hands to be instruments of peace, envoys of reconciliation to an estranged world.
Let Satan not hinder us, nor distractions keep us from our main task.
Blessed be your name in all the earth, as the heavens praise your glory. Amen.
