Christ Be With Me

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,

St. Patrick, C. 460

I have always loved this prayer since the first time that I had heard it. My prayer to all who I encounter today is that I can bring Christ to you through my actions. Although I fail quite frequently my desire is that in humble obedience the love of Christ will touch you when you encounter me. When we encounter each other let us encounter Christ.
