Sunday Prayers and Quotes – March 2, 2013

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 to me,

God’s hand to guard me,

God’s way to lie before me,

God’s shield to protect me,

God’s host to save me…

Christ with me,

Christ before me,

Christ behind me,

Christ in me,

Christ beneath me,

Christ above me,

Christ on my left,

Christ on my right,

Christ when I lie down,

Christ when I sit down,

Christ when I arise,

Christ in the heart of every (one) who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of every one who speaks of me,

Christ in the eye of every one that sees me,

Christ in every ear that hears me.

                                                           — St. Patrick

 

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power… And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.”  — Ephesians 6:10, 18

 

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”  — Theodore Roosevelt

 

“I am leading you step by step, through your life. Hold My hand in trusting dependence, letting Me guide you through this day. Your future looks uncertain and feels flimsy — even precarious. That is how it should be. Secret things belong to the Lord, and future things are secret things. When you try to figure out the future, you are grasping at things that are Mine. This, like all forms of worry, is an act of rebellion: doubting My promises to care for you. Whenever you find yourself worrying about the future, repent and return to Me. I will show you the next step forward and the one after that and the one after that. Relax and enjoy the journey in My Presence, trusting Me to open up the way before you as you go.”   — “Jesus Calling”

 

“The secret things belong to the Lord our God but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.”  (Deut. 29:29)

 

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. I will counsel you and watch over you.”  (Psalm 32:8)
