Saint Patrick (a prayer of…)

Saint Patrick’s Day is coming (Sunday!!) So, late on this Lenten Friday here’s one of his powerful prayers to reflect upon  (’tis also a good one to consider taking along into our daily prayer closets to get those morning prayers rolling! or to jump start our prayers any time of the day…or night, like now : )

Saint Patrick“Permit us not, O Lord, to hear Your Word in vain.  Convince us of its truth, cause us to feel its power and bind us to Yourself with cords of faith and hope and love that never shall be broken.  We bind to ourselves today, You our God:

Your power to hold us,
Your hand to guide us,
Your eye to watch us,
Your ear to hear us,
Your wisdom to teach us,
Your word to give us speech,
Your presence to defend us,

This day and every day;

In the Name of the blessed Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
To whom be the Kingdom, and the Power and the Glory, forever and forever.

Amen.”

Saint Patrick (of… IRELAND!)
