Prayer for the Persecuted

December 16, 2010

In light of what is happening to Domenic Johansson and his family in Sweden, this prayer seems quite fitting.

“Lord, righteous and almighty God, remember Your weather-beaten and tempest-tossed Church on this earth. Restrain her enemies, destroy their wiles, and hinder their violence. Preserve Yours saving truth to us and our children, and grant us to praise You with a joyful heart, now in the Church militant and forever in the Church triumphant. Amen.”

(I have a feeling I’ve posted this prayer before (though my searches came up empty). Even if I have, it is a prayer that still needs to be prayed.)
