A Brief But Powerful Prayer From St. Patrick

I love this short, declarative prayer attributed to the Irish mystic St. Patrick:

May the strength of God pilot us,

May the wisdom of God instruct us,

May the hand of God protect us,

May the Word of God direct us.

Substituting the word “me” for “us” – I often use this prayer whenever I am facing a particularly challenging situation, especially those times when I need guidance, direction, discernment, and protection. Why not give it a try?
