Morning Prayer

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, and in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

I bind myself to You today. Heart, mind and soul. Bind me together, bind me to You and bind your broken world together with bonds that cannot be broken.


*From the Prayer on the Breastplate of Saint Patrick
