Saint Edmund, King of East Anglia, Martyr

Edmund being martyred

Edmund being martyred, from a medieval manuscript. From Wikipedia.

O God, in whose strength Saint Edmund the King stood firm  against the heathen, and at the cost of his own life was the saving of his people: Let him be a leader to encourage us to vanquish every assault of the enemy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O Everlasting King, thou Lord of Hosts: Set up the Cross of  thy dear Son in the hearts of thy people that, with thy holy Martyr King Edmund, they may triumph over every foe; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God of ineffable mercy, who didst give grace and fortitude to  blessed Edmund the king to triumph over the enemy of his people by nobly dying for thy Name: Bestow on us thy servants, we beseech thee, the shield of faith, wherewith we may withstand the assaults of our ancient enemy; through Jesus Christ our Redeemer, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.
