Christ beside me, Christ before me;

Christ behind me, Christ within me;

Christ beneath me, Christ above me;

Christ to the right of me;  Christ to the left of me;

Christ in my lying, my sitting, my rising;

Christ in the hearts of all who know me,

Christ on the tongue of all who meet me,

Christ in the eye of all who see me,

Christ in the ear of all who hear me.


by St. Patrick  (Prayer known as “St. Patrick’s Breastplate”)


Prayer for the Day

Dear Lord,

We pray that as we go out into this day we adorn ourselves with you.  As we speak, we use words that honor you.  As we work, we work to your glory.  As we spend, we remember those in need.  As we love, we cherish the lives you’ve placed in our path.  As we eat, we give thanks.  As we retire from the day, we confess where we fell short.  As we go to sleep, we release ourselves into you grace and peace.
