Happy St. Patrick’s Day

St. PatrickI love this prayer from St. Patrick—

I bind unto myself today
The power of God to hold and lead,
His eyes to watch, His might to stay,
His ear to hearken to my need.
The wisdom of my God to teach,
His hand to guide, His shield to ward;
The Word of God to give me speech,
His heavenly host to be my guard.
I bind unto myself the name,
The strong name of the Trinity;
By invocation of the same,
The Three in One, the One in Three,
Of whom all nature hath creation;
Eternal Father, Spirit, Word,
Praise to the Lord of my salvation,
Salvation is of Christ the Lord.

    Craig, Hope you had a Blessed Saint Patrick’s day. Love the prayer and the song Christ Beside Me. Join us next year for the Saint Patrick’s Festival at the CSUMC and I’ll invite you to read this prayer for the benediction.
    With Christ as Our Shield, Keith
