Prayer of the Knights
O Lord, In memory of the five wounds that we carry on our insignia we pray to You. Give us the strength to love all beings of the world that Our Father has created; and, more so, our enemies.
Free our souls and hearts from sin, from partiality, from egoism and from cowardice so that we can be worthy of your sacrifice of love. Let Your Holy 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 do not believe in You.
Give us Faith to face all the problems of everyday life and to deserve the day to approach Your presence humbly but without fear.
Lord Jesus, who has willed to call me to the Ranks of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, I humbly ask You, by the intercession of the most Blessed Virgin Mary, of Saint Joseph, Saint Peter, Saint Paul and all the Saints, to help me to remain faithful to the traditions of our Order in practicing and defending the Catholic, Apostolic and Roman Religion against impiety and in exercising charity to my Neighbour and above all to the poor and sick in the Holy Land.
Grant to me and my confreres the grace to support by prayer and sacrifice the maintenance of the Holy Places and the work of His Beatitude the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem. Give me the strength to be able to execute these desires with a truly Christian spirit, for The Glory of God, the peace of the world, and the good of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.
