A Prayer For Victory
Whose beginning knows no starting
And whose end knows no beginning
Whose kingdom is from everlasting to everlasting
Whose foundation is truth
And whose dominion is exercised in love,
-Unconditional love! -
Speak and reveal thyself to this mortal soul.
If your voice is silence
Let me hear it.
If your whisper is in the wind
Let it not blow pass me.
If thunder is thy utterance
Let me find peace with it
And if your cry is in the spirit of your word
Let it possess me.
Set your image before me
In dazzling paintings of lightning
And may I trace your fingerprints
In the simple complexities of nature.
In this preparatory school of life
Self is my greatest obstacle,
Humankind my greatest challenge,
Evil my greatest enemy.
Grant me victory over them all.
