An Irish Prayer

My dear readers what I wish for you…

St. Patrick’s Day Printable

If you need some Irish music for jigs and reels or merely for your dining enjoyment I created a St. Patrick’s Day playlist HERE. There is nothing like hearing “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes. (No, I am not kidding. :)

As it is the Sabbath and a holiday, in lieu of a comment please leave a prayer or praise of blessings.

Happy, happy Saint Patrick’s Day!


From Saint Patrick’s breastplate:

Christ be 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 every man
who thinks of me
Christ in the mouth of every man
who speaks of me
Christ in every eye that sees me
Christ in every ear that hears me
Salvation is of the Lord.

I saw this:

May there always be work for your hands to do,
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine warm on your windowpane,
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you,
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

I'm not Irish, but my husband is and our two daughters do Irish Step Dancing so I have heard many of the traditional Irish blessings. One of my favorites is May you be in heaven a half an hour before the devil knows you're dead!

May you always have...
Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire.

I learned that Irish Blessing at Girl Scout camp in a song called The Human Touch. It has always held a special place in my heart. And as for Amazing Grace on the Bagpipes... It is my one request for my funeral and by funeral I mean, a celebration of life!


I just love yourIrish prayers and praise of blessings from St. Patrick's breastplate: I may type this up and hang it somewhere in my home.
