O Lord, Visit This Place

candle-2038736_960_720O Lord, visit this place
and drive far from it all the snares of the enemy.
Let your holy angels dwell here
that you may keep us in peace,
and let your blessing be always upon us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

May your divine help always remain with us. Amen.
