THE KNIGHTS PRAYER

 

O Lord Jesus Christ,

for Your five wounds that we carry on our insignia we pray to You.

Give us the strength to love all whom your Father has created

and, more so, our enemies.

Free our soul and heart from sin,

from partiality, from egoism and from cowardice

so that we can be worthy of Your sacrifice.

Let your Spirit fall upon us all,

the Knights and Ladies of the Holy Sepulchre,

so that it may render us as convinced

and sincere ambassadors of peace and love

among our brothers and sisters and, especially,

among all those who think they do not believe in You.

Give us Faith to face all the problems of everyday life

and to deserve, one day, to approach,

humbly but without fear, Your presence.

Amen.
