Arise with Christ December 16 of Arise with Christ

Deliver us from all evil

Heavenly Father!
Deliver us from all evil and purge us from all sin.
Remove from us all our iniquities and restore to us Your Spirit of goodness and righteousness, that we may walk in Your pathways of holiness.
Purge us from the dark sins of bitterness, resentment, discouragement and despair.
Restore to us the bright light of Your love, hope and faith.
Let our lives be rekindled by Your Heavenly bonfires of love, joy and peace burning away the chaff of the sin of hate, sadness and division, that we may walk together with one mind in the unity of Your Spirit.
Let us all become as one in the Spirit unified by Your Love with the cross of Your Son, Jesus Christ going on before.
Marching, marching, like a mighty army ever onward in cadence to the music of Your Holy Angels singing with the cross of Jesus going on before.
