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.

(quote) Vanessa-496726 said: Hello dear friends in Christ, I have been searching for FT work for the past 5 months and last week, interviewed for a role which exceeds all that I have been praying for (Novena to the Infant of Prague and Our Lady!)! I find out later this week/early next week if I have been chosen and as you can imagine, I am hopeful, but nervous. Would you please join me in praying that I am offered the role, if its God's will?? THANK YOU! ~V
Well, I am still in the waiting process with this role. However, I have been advised I am still considered a candidate and the delays are purely on the org's side...

Though hard to be patient, I can honestly say that this has helped me work on trusting God because its providing a daily opportunity for me to say, "Thy Will" and not "my will" to Him!

Thank you for your continued prayers!

In Him,

Just advised that the role has been dissolved! After a month of waiting, I can't help but feel disappointed! *tear...BUT they will be opening up a different role next week and I have been encouraged to apply for that, so I have hope.

Praying for the grace to remember, "Thy Will be done" and not "my will be done"...

Well friends after another round of interviews and expectations, I was not chosen for the role. :o( However, I have 3.5hrs of intense interviews today for another position in a different organization, so prayers are still most appreciated.

Throughout all of this, I am learning:
'be still and know that [He] is God',
to 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding',
to truly understand that '...
faith is assurance of things hoped for, a conviction of things not seen'
and
to humbly pray the Our Father's 'Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread..'

What a gift! Knowing that His desire is for me to spend eternity with Him in Heaven, then facing these bumps, swerves, heartaches and challenges take on a whole new meaning. As my spiritual advisor says, "Pray for the grace to carry your cross daily, for this is the means of your salvation"!

So for all those who feel it is all so hard, take courage! I offer my rosary, my struggles for you too.

In Him
~V.
