Saint/St. Patrick of Ireland Holy Prayer
Who is Saint Patrick?

Saint Patrick is the great saint and patron of the Irish people.
His intensely spiritual nature, his enthusiasm and his strength in action enabled him to surmount tremendous difficulties and to gradually bring the Christian faith to all Ireland.
Patrick was born in Roman Britain in late fourth century A.D.

His father, Calpurnius, was a deacon in the Christian church.
When Patrick was sixteen years old, a band of Irish marauders carried him off and kept him in captivity tending herds.
After six years, he escaped, and after several years he returned home.
Patrick faced many difficulties in his life.
He was never afraid to confront evil and he knew that Jesus Christ lived in him and spoke through him.
I arise today through a mighty strength,
the invocation of the Trinity, through belief in the Threeness,
through confession of the Oneness of the Creator of creation.
I arise today through the strength of Christ with his Baptism,
through the strength of His Crucifixion with His Burial,
through the strength of His Resurrection with His Ascension,
through the strength of His descent for the Judgment of Doom.

I arise today through the strength of the love of Cherubim
in obedience of Angels, in the service of the Archangels,
in hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
in prayers of Patriarchs, in predictions of Prophets,
in preachings of Apostles, in faiths of Confessors,
in innocence of Holy Virgins, in deeds of righteous men.
I arise today, through the strength of Heaven;
light of Sun, brilliance of Moon, splendor of Fire,
speed of Lightning, swiftness of Wind, depth of Sea,
stability of Earth, firmness of Rock.
I arise today, through God's strength to pilot me:
God's might to uphold me,
God's wisdom to guide me,
God's eye to look before me,
God's ear to hear me,
God's word to speak for me,
God's hand to guard me,
God's way to lie before me,
God's shield to protect me,
God's host to secure me:
against snares of devils,
against temptations of vices,
against inclinations of nature,
against everyone who shall wish me ill,
afar and anear, alone and in a crowd.
I summon today all these powers between me (and these evils):
against every cruel and merciless power that
may oppose my body and my soul,
against incantations of false prophets,
against black laws of heathenry, against false laws of heretics, craft of idolatry,
against spells of witches, smiths and wizards,
against every knowledge that endangers man's body and soul. to protect me today against poisoning,
against burning, against drowning, against wounding,
so that there may come abundance in reward. with me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me, in me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me, on my right,
Christ on my left,
Christ in breadth,
Christ in length,
Christ in height, in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me, in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
I arise today through a mighty strength,
the invocation of the Trinity,
through belief in the Threeness,
through confession of the Oneness of the Creator of creation.
Salvation is of the Lord.
Salvation is of the Lord.
Salvation is of Christ. Thy Salvation, O Lord, be ever with us.
