Today is St. Patrick’s Day – because of COVID-19 – the usual revelry will be at a minimum. Perhaps the best thing we could do today is remember this prayer attributed to St. Patrick.
This is a shortened version that is in our hymnal
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 for 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. Christ be 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 when I arise, Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.
