A Prayer for today- by St. Patrick, Moses & Psalms

May the Strength of God pilot us.
May the Power of God preserve us.
May the Wisdom of God instruct us.
May the Hand of God protect us.
May the Way of God direct us.
May the Shield of God defend us.
May the Host of God guard us.
Against the snares of the evil ones.
Against temptations of the world

May Christ be with us!
May Christ be before us!
May Christ be in us,
Christ be over all!
May Thy Salvation, Lord,
Always be ours,
This day, O Lord, and evermore. Amen -St. Patrick



O Lord, 
Great and Mighty God,
Creator of Heaven and Earth
Fight those who fight against me 
Take hold of the shield and buckler
and stand up for my help
stop those who pursue me
and say to my soul “I am your Salvation”
Bow down your ear to hear me
Deliver me speedily
Be my rock of refuge
A fortress of defense to save me.
Lead me and guide me 
Pull me out of the net they have laid before me
O Lord I will give thanks to you forever
Bring me out of my distress
Consider my enemies, they are many
Deliver me, For I wait for you 
Indeed, let no one who waits for you be ashamed
Redeem your people from all their troubles

Keep me as the shadow of your eye
Hide me under the shadow of your wings
From the wicked and deadly enemies that surround me.

May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble,
May the name of the God of Jacob defend you
May He send you help from the sanctuary
and strengthen you out of Zion.
May He grant you according to your hearts desire
and fulfill all your purpose

Cleanse us from secret faults
Keep us from sin and temptation
let them not have dominion over us

   I will love you O Lord, my strength,
The Lord is my Rock and my Fortress and my Deliver
My God, My Strength, in Whom I trust
All my days, I will seek your face in righteousness

Enlighten my eyes
lest I sleep
Open my ears to hear your instruction
Give me understanding to know your ways
Fill me with wisdom so my steps may please you
I wait on You, O Lord, I will not be ashamed

Psalm 34, 26.30.25,20,19,17
