Today we celebrate the feast day of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. There are a lot of great prayers on the internet relating to St. Patrick, so here’s one of our favorites, as well as a link to a great site explaining all about this famous saint.
May the Strength of God pilot us.
May the Power of God preserve us.
May the Wisdom of God instruct us.
May the Hand of God protect us.
May the Way of God direct us.
May the Shield of God defend us.
May the Host of God guard us.
Against the snares of the evil ones.
Against temptations of the world
May Christ be with us!
May Christ be before us!
May Christ be in us,
Christ be over all!
May Thy Salvation, Lord,
Always be ours,
This day, O Lord, and evermore. Amen.
