>A Prayer For Steadiness in Virtue

>In a world scarred by fear and indifference,
The joys of the moment seem passing follies.

We have to ask- where does the true reality
Begin and end?

Are our joys illusionary, or is that our sufferings?
Why oh why do bad things happen under the golden sun?

The answer, my friend, is undoubtedly simple:
Demonic influence- willing embraced by fools.

Nothing but good enters the world from God’s will,
To be twisted by the jealous, bitter will of Satan’s.

God’s power is omnipresent, yet asks for faith to act.
Satan’s dark will requires minions to follow.

If no-one, anywhere, would give aid to Satan,
His ability to act would be utterly curtailed.

Such is the way of a free-will universe,
Where we humans choose to worship God and find safety in Him.

All sin is consciously chosen,
However bizarre that might seen

Yet much evil is subconscious, habitual, ignorant.
Sin begets evil, makes it worse.

Virtue sets in habits of goodness, gentleness,
A passion for helping others.

Here is the key, for those who wish to be good-
Be virtuous, light and children of the clouds.

For then evil will stay far from you,
Along with the temptations to do such wickedness as it plots.

What bothers me the most is not suffering the ill will of others,
But myself falling into such worldly ways.

I know that angels and demons are all real, very real,
They influence the ways of men, even they see such spirits not.

We chose, yet we also follow the guidance of spirits,
Entrusted long ago with guarding this Earth from the mistakes of her children.

No spirit came here but by God’s will.
The evil ones rebelled, yet were somehow able to stay.

For a loving God finds it hard to summarily punish wrongdoers,
He wishes more for their repentance and thus grants them time.

Time, time; a breath in eternity.
So much can happen in this temporal realm.

How to think of, understand this great mystery?
I pray to you God, for this…

Keep me safe from the ways of the Babylon’s Whore
Keep my faith to you intact

Warn me before I slide to sinful temptations,
So I know better than to thwart your will.

Please forgive my many sins in though, word and deed,
Help me to be true to you.

Help our hearts, our thoughts to be pure and selfless
Help us always to do the greater good for all.

As it was, is now and ever shall be. Worlds without end,
Amen
