O, mighty Lord, I pray
That You will be my shield,
just as You protected St. Joan of Arc in battle.
As I do battle against ignorance, cruelty, and injustice,
through Your unending love,
I pray that You will deliver me from my enemies
and that You will grant me goodness and steadfastness,
so that I might lead others to do Your will

and glorify Your Name.
Through the power of Christ, our Lord. Amen.
