I offer up this prayer to ask for your protection and blessing
to be bestowed upon the saints of this world.
You know who they are and
You know well their tribulations.
Please uplift their spirits
so that they can continue to bring blessings into the world
through their selfless acts centered on You.
May the saints of the world
rise up with new power and glory
and lead the way to Your kingdom. Amen.
Chestina Mitchell Archibard, African American chaplain at Fisk University
Here is a call for the endurance of the saints,
those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.
