Wonderful Counsellor, thank you that you are my strength and my song, you fill my heart with joy from morning to evening. Your word says that you are near to all who call on you, to all who call on you in truth. I call on you to protect me and those I love. You are the hiding place for your people, you protect them from harm and surround them with songs of deliverance. Give me assurance that the battle belongs to you, O mighty Lord. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
