A Prayer

When I was Confirmed, which is a Christian Protestant rite, my Pastor wrote this verse from Ephesians in my Prayer Book.

"I therefore a prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the vocation you are called, with all lowliness, meekness and longsuffering. Forbearing one another with Love."

Almighty Father in Heaven, send forth your Holy Ghost to guide and direct your children in their hearts. Jesus, Lord, enter into their hearts to do the the Father's will, with all help from you. Let them be held by you and carried by you.

Protect them from the evil one and all those who are tools of it. Let them not be hindered nor harmed.

Now may the Peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. May God keep you in the one True Faith to life everlasting, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son and the Holy Ghost Amen and Amen.
