Prayer of St. Patrick

Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

I bind unto myself the name,
The strong name of the Trinity;
By invocation of the same.
The Three in One, and 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.

It's popular in Christian circles to say prayer works. Yet, no one knows how prayer works or what exactly constitutes an answer to the many requests we make of God on behalf of our families, friends, and loved ones. It's a matter of faith. We pray because we trust that God precedes us in caring about all aspects of life. We pray because we know prayer changes how we think, feel, and act. And sometimes we pray because we don't know what else to do - we've exhausted all human action on behalf of the one we are praying for. We have no choice but to leave the concern in God's hands. Praying for others not only involves petitions for our loved ones, but also prayers for the larger human community - our neighborhoods, churches, nation, national leaders, and the world.
