This song was written with the feeling of one being alone
at war, entrenched in the dark, and surrounded by enemies.
It is a prayer to the God of the Gospel. It is a belief that in this time
we are living, in this Gospel dispensation, the Prince of Peace still

distracted by the enemy of our souls, but to pray to the Savior of
our souls and to be His soldiers. To look after the orphan and
widow in their distress, and to pray for those who falsely accuse us
and say all kinds of evil against us because of our testimony for
To remember that it is through obedience to Christ’s teaching that
we enter into the peace He has won for us, and the salvation He
has purchased for us, and the work He has called us to.
To strive to walk in the daily prayer, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done.”
