The road to enlightenment relies on our ability to be open to Christ’s teaching and The Word, be it from our surroundings or others. The prayer of an Apostle to the Ephesian Christians quoted here reminds us of this. In it, is the wish for others to attain spiritual understanding in accordance with the hope of The Lord for all His children to strive for spiritual perfection. As inheritors of this tradition, in passing on the word, we commune with the holiest of Apostles. In passing on our prayers to others, we find unity with Christ. In wishes of finding God’s salvation born out of Love and hope for Mankind, we trace our true lineage to that of the Kingdom of Heaven.
And we pray:
Heavenly Father, give me the strength and vigilance to defend Your honor and praise Your glory. Allow me to fortify my faith against all evil, under the guardianship of Your angels. Deliver me from Satan’s work Lord, and let me not falter or weaken in his wake. Grant me awareness, so as under the eyes of Gabriel, I may continue lift my heart up closer to Your Essence, my Heavenly Father. Amen.
