from the darkness of this grief
to peace and joy in your presence.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.

Heavenly Father, 
We ask You today for Your truth, 
As a belt tight around our waists. 

We put on the zeal, 
To announce Your good news of peace, 
As shoes for our feet. 

We put on Your righteousness, 
O Christ, as our breastplate. 
And the hope of salvation, 
As a helmet for our head.
