This is the prayer of a devout Christian Soldier, called to the Banner of the Living God, and of our Saviour Jesus.
King of Angels,
strengthen Thy servant to wield the Sword of the Spirit,
Courage to trust in the Shield of Faith,
And in the armour of the Gospel.
Give wisdom also to recognise Thy foe,
Lest in my ignorance,
I wound Thy friend.
My zeal is not enough
Except it be directed by Thee.
(The armies of heaven were following him- Revelation 19 v14)
