May you hear God’s voice when troubles arise,
may the Holy Presence sustain you,
may messengers bring you comfort
May your plans
align with God’s good will
and give you joy.
May you overcome all obstacles
so that, in the days to come,
we will cheer your victory in the Name of God.
May God give you all that you need –
if not all that you want.
I am confident that those
who follow the blessing Way
divine power will help us achieve the goal.
Some rely on crime, corruption, or connections;
on bribes, threats, or outright violence –
but we will have faith in our God.
They fall on their faces,
but we will stand tall.
O Gracious One, lead us to victory and let us hear Your clarion call.
