A Prayer For Victory - Poem by Kensley Charlemagne

God Eternal!
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.

    God Eternal!
    Thy beginning knows no starting
    And Thy end knows no beginning,
    Thy kingdom is from everlasting to everlasting,
    Thy foundation is truth
    And Thy dominion is exercised in love,
    -Unconditional love! -

    Speak and reveal Thyself to this mortal soul,
    If Thy voice is silence,
    Let me hear it,
    If Thy whisper is in the wind,
    Let it not blow past me,
    If thunder is Thy utterance,
    Let me find peace with it
    And if Thy cry is in the spirit of Thy word,
    Let it possess me.

    Set Thy image before me
    In dazzling paintings of lightning
    And may I trace Thy 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 Thy victory over them all.
