For the Defeat of Enemies: Devotions from the Roman Missal
With today being Election Day in the U.S., knowing what is at stake, as we offer our Rosaries and implore the Mother of God for a happy result, we also take note of these prayers from the Missale Romanum for devotional use.
We beseech Thee, O Lord, to crush the pride of our enemies, and humble their insolence by the power of Thy right hand. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Look down, O God, our Protector, and defend us from the perils of our enemies, that all trouble being removed, we may serve Thee with quiet minds. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
We beseech Thee, O Lord, mercifully to receive the prayers of Thy Church: that all adversity and error being destroyed, she may serve Thee in security and freedom. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
