A Centurion's Daily Litany

Lord, give us knowledge of ourselves
O Lord, sustain us in your service

As we serve you in our work and in our lives, give us an earnest desire to strengthen our faith continually by study, diligence, prayer, and meditation.
O Lord, sustain us in your service

As soldiers, obedient to your Command, let your Spirit motivate us this day
O Lord, sustain us in your service

We pray today for these members of our Legion: FOR

That it may please you to give us peace * We beseech you to hear us, good Lord

Lord have mercy upon us
Christ have mercy upon us
Lord have mercy upon us

Let us pray:

O Christ, our Leader in life's battle; We pray you; love all fellow officers of the Order of Centurions and teach them to love you with all their hearts and minds that they may think and speak and do only such things as are well-pleasing to you. Give them ready grace always to be strong and good, faithful and brave soldiers. Give them the courage to boldly witness their faith in you by their thoughts, words and actions. Graciously assist them with your heavenly help that they may ever diligently serve you and by no temptation be separated from you; who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit ever, one God, world without end. Amen

Almighty God, our sovereign Lord, who called Cornelius the Centurion to be the first Christian among the Gentiles, who healed the servant at Capernaum in accordance with the Centurion's great faith, and who inspired the Centurion at Calvary to glorify Jesus; strengthen us in our faith that we might follow their example to love, serve, and glorify you as faithful members of the Church Militant, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Note: We encourage you to use this litany for centurions who are newly registered into the Order, and for those whose anniversaries we celebrate. You can just pencil them in to this Litany.

Thanks to a centurion for this gift of love. Trinity 2005
