Dear Father, Great Provider and Protector, assaults from the evil one harass us and cause us to live in fear.
Encourage us with the clarity of Your Word and the inspiration of Your Spirit that we may live day to day in the trust and assurance that Christ Jesus dwelling in us will keep us in safety.
By our baptism into the life of Christ and armed with the gift of faith, help us be instruments of Your peace in the world.
As we interact with people around us, may our words and actions be a source of healing to those seeking hope and direction.
May the Word and Sacraments of Your church remain a forceful weapon against any and all Satanic attacks, for Christ crucified and resurrected will always win the day. We ask this through Christ, our Saviour and Lord. Amen.
Thanks to Rev. Todd Hoeffs, of Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Winnipeg, for contributing CLWR’s prayer for the third Sunday after Pentecost
