O King of Glory and Lord of Valour, our warrior and our peace. May you win victories in the world through us your servants, for without you we are nothing.

May your compassion go before us and come behind us; be with us at our beginnings and at our endings. May your will be done in everything we do, for you are our salvation, our glory and our joy.

Love this ancient prayer by Alcuin of York, just one of the Northern Monks who is inspiring me right now.

From Rhythms of Prayer for a Modern World, by Carl Tinnion.
