PRAYER OF ST. PATRICK
As I arise today,
may the strength of God pilot me,
the power of God uphold me,
the wisdom of God guide me.
May the eye of God look before me,
the ear of God hear me,
the Word of God speak for me.
May the hand of God protect me,
the way of God lie before me,
the shield of God defend me,
the host of God save me.
May Christ shield me today.
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,
Christ when I stand,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

Do you have the right mindset to overcome what you’re facing? You may think you do, but chances are if you’re still being overcome by the same problems, there is something you’re missing. All you need are the missing pieces of the puzzle and you will have the tools to complete the breakthrough transformation you so passionately have asked God for.
Melanie Peters is a good girl, as good girls go. Never doing anything bad, other than a little mischief with her best friend, Carol. So, why would one of Lucifer’s lackeys be so interested in her? Interested to the point of killing her in the most ridiculous way imaginable and sending her to the “Gates of St. Peter” earlier than they are expecting her(…..)
