St. Patrick’s Day Prayer

Dear friends,

On St. Patrick’s Day, I encourage you to go outside and take a walk this afternoon or evening. Use this prayer attributed to St. Patrick as your guide.  Breathe deep as you step into the next moment and pray:

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 when I arise

(Tradition states this prayer was on the breastplate of St. Patrick).

God bless you and be with you always,
Pastor Beth
