St. Patrick’s Daily Prayer

Oh Holy Spirit of God
Come into my heart and fill me
I open the windows of my soul to let you in
I surrender my whole life to you.
Come and possess me
Fill me with your love and truth
Fill me that I might live the life of Spirit
The life of truth and beauty
The life of love and goodness
The life of wisdom and strength
Guide me today in all things
Guide me to the people I should meet or help
To the circumstances in which I can best serve you
Whether by my actions or by my sufferings
But above all
Make Christ to be formed in me
That I may dethrone self in my heart
And make You king
So that you abide in me
And I in you
Both now and forevermore. ~ Amen
