Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom? Have You not rejected us, O God? You do not go out, O God, with our armies. Oh grant us help against the foe, for vain is the salvation of man! With God we shall do valiantly; it is He who will tread down our foes.
Lord, rise up and lead Your people into battle against the forces of evil. Revive Your Church to lay siege against the gates of Hell. Fill us with Your zeal and fervor to carry the message of grace and mercy, the Good News of the Kingdom into the darkest corners of our towns and villages. Help us to grasp that Ambassador of Reconciliation is an active position with great responsibilities for advancing the Kingdom, not a sinecure.
