The Prayer Of Saint Patrick – Finding Strength And Courage For The Day.

The Prayer Of Saint Patrick

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity
Through a belief in the Threeness
Through confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation
I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth and His baptism
Through the strength of His crucifixion and His burial
Through the strength of His resurrection and His ascension
Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom
I arise today
Through the strength of the love of cherubim
In obedience of angels
In service of archangels
In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward
In the prayers of patriarchs
In preachings of the apostles
In faiths of confessors
In innocence of virgins
In deeds of righteous men
I arise today
Through the strength of heaven
Light of the sun
Splendor of fire
Speed of lightning
Swiftness of the wind
Depth of the sea
Stability of the earth
Firmness of the rock
I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me
God’s might to uphold me
God’s wisdom to guide me
God’s eye to look before me
God’s ear to hear me
God’s word to speak for me
God’s hand to guard me
God’s way to lie before me
God’s shield to protect me
God’s hosts to save me
From snares of the devil
From temptations of vices
From everyone who desires me ill
Afar and near
Alone or in a multitude
I summon today all these powers between me and evil
Against every cruel merciless power that opposes my body and soul
Against incantations of false prophets
Against black laws of pagandom
Against false laws of heretics
Against craft of idolatry
Against spells of women and smiths and wizards
Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul
Christ shield me today
Against poison, against burning
Against drowning, against wounding
So that reward may come to me in abundance
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me
Christ on my right, Christ on my left
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me
Christ in the eye that sees me
Christ in the ear that hears me
I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity
Through a belief in the Threeness
Through a confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation

The Prayer of Saint Patrick

The Prayer Of Saint Patrick Finding Strength And Courage For The Day.014

Sometimes life can get exhausting. 

Too much to do, with so little time.

Sometimes we are faced with so much pressure from all sides as life tries to box into corners.

I pray when we are faced with insurmountable odds, we can trust the power of Jesus to see us through any difficulties we face.

I pray when we are feeling weak, we can trust Jesus to give us strength to soar as wings and carry on. 

28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
Yahweh is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the whole earth.
He never grows faint or weary;
there is no limit to His understanding.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and strengthens the powerless.
30 Youths may faint and grow weary,
and young men stumble and fall,
31 but those who trust in the Lord
will renew their strength;
they will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary;
they will walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:28-31
