Almighty and ever living God,
By whose grace thy servants are enabled
To fight the good fight of faith,
And ever prove victorious,
We humbly beseech Thee,
So to inspire us,
That we may yield our hearts to Thy obedience,
And exercise our wills on Thy behalf.
Help us to think wisely,
And live purely.
Bless us in body and in soul,
And make us a blessing to our comrades.
Whether at home or abroad,
May we ever seek the extension of Thy kingdom.
Let the assurance of Thy presence
Save us from sinning,
Strengthen us in life,
And comfort us in death.
Oh Lord our God,
Accept this prayer.
