Equestrian Order of the Most Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem

Prayer of the Knights and Ladies

O Lord Jesus Christ, for Your five wounds
that we carry on our insignia
we pray to You.

Give us the strength to love all whom
Your Father has created
and, more so, our enemies.

Free our soul and heart
from sin, from partiality,
from egoism and from cowardice
so that we can be worthy of Your sacrifice.

Let Your Spirit fall upon us all, the Knights and Ladies of the Holy Sepulchre,
so that it may render us as convinced and
sincere ambassadors of peace and love among
our brothers and sisters, and, especially among
all those who think they do not believe in You.

Give us faith,
to face all the problems of everyday life
and to deserve, one day, to approach,
humbly but without fear,
Your presence.
