Our Morning Offering – 11 November – The Memorial of St Martin of Tours (c 316-397)
I Will Fight Beneath Your Banner, Lord
Prayer of St Martin of Tours (c 316-397)
Lord, if Your people still have need
of my services,
I will not avoid the toil.
Your will be done.
I have fought the good fight long enough.
Yet if You bid me continue to hold
the battle line in defense
of Your camp,
I will never beg to be excused
from failing strength.
I will do the work You entrust to me.
While You command,
I will fight beneath Your banner.
