An event last weekend at Lord of Hosts Church in Omaha Nebraska featured Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, who at the end of his address led those gathered in a rather curious prayer. The event was captured in a Tweet by one of Flynn’s partisan detractors.
According to General Flynn’s Wikipedia profile both of his parents are Irish Catholic.
Flynn’s “benediction” was also discussed at some length on the September 20th edition of TruNews, where the hosts linked the general’s prayer to ideas developed by well-known occultists Alice Bailey and Helena Blavatsky.
We are your instrument of your sevenfold rays and all your archangels—all of ‘em
We will not retreat. We will not retreat
We will stand our ground
We will not fear to speak
We will be the instrument of your will, whatever it is
In your name, and the name of your legions
We are free born, and we shall remain free born
And we shall not be enslaved
By any foe, within or without
So help me god
Flynn’s prayer also suggests an affinity with the “Ascended Masters” movement that worships entities believed to have broken the “reincarnation cycle.”
