Prayers for Victims of Jihad

O ALMIGHTY God, the supreme Governor of all things, Whose power no creature is able to resist, to Whom it belongeth justly to punish sinners, and to be merciful to those who truly repent; Save and deliver us, we humbly beseech Thee, from the hands of our enemies; that we, being armed with Thy defence, may be preserved evermore from all perils, to glorify Thee, who art the only giver of all victory; through the merits of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O GOD, Whose nature and property is ever to have mercy and to forgive, receive our humble petitions for the souls of Thy servants and handmaids, which Thou hast commanded to depart out of this world: deliver them not into the hand of the enemy, neither forsake them at the last; but command them to be received by the holy Angels, and brought to the country of paradise; that forasmuch as they hoped and believed in Thee, they may not undergo the pains of Hell, but be made partakers of everlasting felicity. Through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

REST eternal grant unto them, O Lord : and let light perpetual shine upon them, O Lord, with Thy saints for evermore, for thou art gracious.
