The Prayer of St. Patrick - Oak Grove United Methodist Church
March 6, 2016
FOURTH SUNDAY IN LENT
In our worship today, we will use a portion of the prayer of St. Patrick. Ancient prayers often have disputed authorship,
but this prayer is frequently attributed to St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. This is an excerpt of the prayer.
The Prayer of St. Patrick
I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity...
I arise today
Through the strength of Christ's birth with His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.
I arise today
Through the strength of the love of cherubim,
In the obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In the prayers of patriarchs,
In the predictions of prophets,
In the preaching of apostles,
In the faith of confessors...
I arise today, through
The strength of heaven,
The light of the sun,
The radiance of the moon,
The splendor of fire,
The speed of lightning,
The swiftness of wind,
The depth of the sea,
The stability of the earth,
The firmness of 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 shield to protect me,
God's host to save me
From snares of devils,
From temptation of vices,
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
afar and near.
I summon today
All these powers between me and those evils,
Against every cruel and merciless power
that may oppose my body and soul...
So that there may come to me an abundance of reward.
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 when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man 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.
I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity...

Rev. Susan Allen Grady
We are not alone; we live in God’s world. We believe in God: who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh, to reconcile and make new, who works in us and
others by the Spirit. We trust in God. We are called to be the church: to celebrate God’s presence,
to love and serve others, to seek justice and resist evil, to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope. In life, in death, in life beyond death, God is with us. We are not alone.
Thanks be to God. Amen.
A Morning Prayer and The Lord’s Prayer
Rev. Allen Grady
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us
from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

How Excellent Is Thy Name

John Weatherford, Narrator
Eugene Butler
How excellent is Thy name, O mighty Lord! How excellent in all the earth. When I consider the heavens, the moon and the stars which Thou
ordaineth, what is man that Thou are mindful of him, and the Son of man that Thou visitest him? Thou hast made man a little lower than the angels,
and hast crowned him with honor and with glory. Thou hast given him dominion over the works of Thy hand. Thou hast put all things under his feet,
all sheep and oxen and the beast of the field, the fowl of the air and the fish of the sea.
O Lord! Our Lord! How excellent is Thy name in all the earth! Alleluia! Amen!
*Doxology
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; praise God, all creatures here below;
Praise God above, ye heavenly host; praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
(Following the Doxology at 11:00, children in Pre-K, Kindergarten, and First Grade may leave for Children’s Church.

Sacrament of Holy Communion
A Service of Word and Table II
UMH 12
The sacrament of communion is a sign and means of receiving
God's grace. Therefore communion, like grace itself, is available
to all people without regard to age, church membership status,
relationship to Oak Grove, or denominational affiliation.
The table belongs to God, so all are welcome. If you prefer
gluten-free elements, please go to the station to the left of the
pulpit. Once you receive the bread, please dip it in the grape
juice in the chalice. After receiving communion you may kneel
at the chancel to pray or return to your seat.
