Prayer of St. Patrick


I Take for My Sureties:


The power of God to guide me,

The might of God to uphold me,

The Wisdom of God to teach me,

The eye of God to watch over me,

The ear of God to hear me,

The word of God to give me speech,

The hand of God to protect me,

The shield of God to shelter me,

The way of God to guard me.


Christ be with me, Christ before me,

Christ behind me, Christ within me,

Christ beneath me, Christ above me,

Christ at my right, Christ at my left,

Christ in the hearts of all who think of me,

Christ in the mouths of all who speak to me,

Christ in every eye that sees me,

Christ in every ear that hears me.
