I had fallen asleep! ! He woke me up.


Last nite I became aware that I needed to pray...which I am just getting back into after a looooong time away from this faith. I have been displaced several times in the past few years due to natural disasters and could remember a box with a bunch of old rosaries in it. I prayed hard to Jesus and St Anthony for help and within minutes I was directed right to where they were!


I LOVE the feeling in my heart and the closeness I have to God right now. Especially the Holy Spirit which I never really felt I understood. I want my prayer requests today to be for contnued renewal in my faith, a spiritual guide to help me understa d and rightly practice the traditions and to not falter in my renewed conviction. I even need to re-learn how to rightly pray a rosary! !


God bless you all today

Thank you for sharing your story, Susan. Hearing about God's grace meeting you in your time of need is a gift to all of us.

Hi Pat.Loosely, Its theNative American version of a guardian angel. I believe that God comes to us right where we are at and in ways we can accept him. The hawks are always with me and guarding me. Tuesday it was made very clear that it was the Holy Spirit. He had been trying to "get" me for a little while.....and I guess this was my time to be receptive Praying

The Prayer of St. Patrick

I arise today

Through the strength of heaven;

Light of the sun,

Splendor of fire,

Speed of lightning,

Swiftness of the wind,

Depth of the sea,

Stability of the earth,

Firmness of the rock.

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 for me,

God's hand to guard me,

God's way to lie before me,

God's shield to protect me,

God's hosts to save me

Afar and anear,

Alone or in a mulitude.

Christ shield me today

Against wounding

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 when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,

Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,

Christ in the eye that sees me,

Christ in the ear that hears me.

I arise today

Through the mighty strength

Of the Lord of creation.
