Start The Day Right!

One of the ancient prayers of the church, which has survived in various forms over the centuries, is one known as “Saint Patrick’s Breastplate.”

MP900400451[1]It reminds us to begin each day by depending wholly on God’s power and protection.

Why not join me and begin each day with this prayer on your lips? Let’s trust God every step of the way!

I rise today 
with the power of God to pilot me,

God’s strength to sustain me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look ahead for me, 
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to protect me,
God’s way before me,
God’s shield to defend me,
God’s host to deliver me,
from snares of devils,
from evil temptations,
from nature’s failings,
from all who wish to harm me,
far or near,
alone and in a crowd.

—"Saint Patrick’s Breastplate,"
Old Irish, eighth-century prayer.
