A collect for our times

My vicar and I are reading through 2 Chronicles at the moment during Morning Prayer. This morning we came across a simple yet pointed prayer which seems so relevant for today's times and battles, that we Christians face: Here is the prayer:
LORD, there is no-one like you to help the powerless against the mighty. Help us, O LORD our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this vast army. O LORD, you are our God; do not let man prevail against you.
Wonderfully simple and yet full of incredible confidence. Following this prayer, the LORD brought Judah a mighty victory, totally destroying her enemies and I am confident, that sometime in the next few hundred years those opponents of Christ's Church (both within and without) will be strewn all over the pages of history. You've been warned!
