Favorite Prayer of St. Patrick

Christ Be With Me by St. Patrick

Christ with me,
Christ before me, 
Christ behind me,
Christ in me, 
Christ beneath me, 
Christ above me,
Christ on my right, 
Christ on my left,
Christ where I lie, 
Christ where I sit, 
Christ where I arise,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every one who speaks to me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
Salvation is of the Lord.
Salvation is of the Christ.
May your salvation, Lord, be ever with us.


  1. Christ Be With Me is very important. I'm reading similar things nearly every day now. It's a necessity of life to be reminded and reminded again that He loves and cares for me/us. In the midst of our present-day world it's very important to know where we fit with Him. Thanks for the reminder, blessing.

  2. What a lovely prayer and tribute to St Patrick on this week of his celebration. Thank you for sharing with us here at "Tell Me a Story."
