Power of God, be our protection; wisdom of God, be our
word of God, be our inspiration; shield of God, be our
hosts of God, be our deliverance; Son of God, be our
now and always. Amen.
St Patrick's Breastplate, Book of Armagh (9th
We give thanks for the resurrection power of Jesus, that no
tomb can withstand and no enslavement restrain. We pray that
those under political, economic, social and cultural
oppression may experience liberation through the grace of God,
the acts of leaders of goodwill and the sacrificial mission of
the Church in all parts of the world. We pray that we, as
disciples, may have the courage to let go of our instincts of
self-preservation and, in doing so, find the true freedom
reserved for those who take up their cross and follow Jesus,
the saviour of the world.
