In the words of St. Patrick,
“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”
Heavenly Father, in the words of the Psalmist,
“You have searched us and known us.
You know our sittings down and our risings up;
You understand our thoughts afar off.
You comprehend our paths and our lying down,
And are acquainted with all our ways.
Where can we go from Your Spirit?
Or where can we flee from Your presence?”**
Draw us closer to you, teach us your immanence, that as we breathe in…and as we breathe out…we are conscious of You, You Who indwell us, You Who make us the Temple of the living God, and You who dwell in the beauty of Holiness.
Heavenly Father, we pray for those who need a special touch from You for their relationships, for their finances, for their emotional health, for their physical health, for all the needs that are known only to You.
Holy Spirit, comfort us. Holy Spirit, teach us.
May Jesus be glorified in all that is done and said today
In His name we pray,
