O Lord, through your holy communion
may I be protected from evil.
May You be a helmet of faith
and a shield of good will.
May You purify me from evil ways
and put an end to my evil passions.
May You bring me charity and patience,
humility and obedience,
and growth in power to do good.
May You be my strong defense against all my enemies,
visible and invisible,
and the perfect calming of all my evil impulses.
