Lord Jesus, you are the bulwark against the present evil. You are the bronze wall, the fortified city and the iron pillar that keeps darkness and despair from flooding the nations. You are the light of the world and the defender of the beloved. You, Son of Man, will send your angels to remove all causes of sin and the lawbreakers. Guide me to my part in the fight for righteousness, holding faith and a good conscience. Let me shine your light upon my circle of influence with holy boldness in your precious name and powerful authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“This charge I entrust to you, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies previously made about you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, holding faith and a good conscience.” (1 Timothy 1:18-19a ESV)
