PSALM 24 – AD TE, DOMINE, LEVAVI

PSALM 24 – AD TE, DOMINE, LEVAVI

A prayer for grace, mercy, and protection against our enemies.

Unto the end, a psalm for David.

To thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul. In thee, O my God, I put my trust; let me not be ashamed.

Neither let my enemies laugh at me: for none of them that wait on thee shall be confounded.

Let all them be confounded that act unjust things without cause.

Shew, O Lord, thy ways to me, and teach me thy paths.

Direct me in thy truth, and teach me; for thou art God my Saviour; and on thee have I waited all the day long.

Remember, O Lord, thy bowels of compassion; and thy mercies that are from the beginning of the world.

The sins of my youth and my ignorances do not remember.

According to thy mercy remember thou me: for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord.

The Lord is sweet and righteous: therefore he will give a law to sinners in the way.

He will guide the mild in judgment: he will teach the meek his ways.

All the ways of the Lord are mercy and truth, to them that seek after his covenant and his testimonies.

For thy name’s sake, O Lord, thou wilt pardon my sin: for it is great.

Who is the man that feareth the Lord? He hath appointed him a law in the way he hath chosen.

His soul shall dwell in good things: and his seed shall inherit the land.

The Lord is a firmament to them that fear him: and his covenant shall be made manifest to them.

My eyes are ever towards the Lord: for he shall pluck my feet out of the snare.

Look thou upon me, and have mercy on me; for I am alone and poor.

The troubles of my heart are multiplied: deliver me from my necessities.

See my abjection and my labour; and forgive me all my sins.

Consider my enemies for they are multiplied, and have hated me with an unjust hatred.

Keep thou my soul, and deliver me: I shall not be ashamed, for I have hoped in thee.

The innocent and the upright have adhered to me: because I have waited on thee.

Deliver Israel, O God, from all his tribulations.

HOLY CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST, BE OUR HOPE

God all powerful, who has suffered on the tree of the Cross, be with us, Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, have pity on us. Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, be our hope. Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, turn away from us all sharp weapons. Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, pour into us all good. Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, turn away from us all evil.

 

Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, make us walk in the paths of salvation. Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, preserve us from all spiritual and temporal accidents. Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, may I adore thee. Holy Cross of Jesus, now and forever, Jesus of Nazareth, crucified, have pity on us, make the invisible fly far from us now and for ever and ever. Amen.

 

(Holy Mary, Mother of God, St Joseph, St Michael Archangel, and Holy Angels, protect us.)

SAINT PATRICK’S POWERFUL PROTECTION PRAYERS – LORICA I-VIII

THE LORICA OF ST PATRICK (BREAST PLATE PRAYER)

FIRST LORICA:

I arise today
through a mighty strength,
the invocation of the Trinity,
through a belief in the Threeness,
through confession of the Oneness
of the Creator of Creation.

SECOND LORICA:

I arise today
through the strength of Christ’s birth
and His baptism,
through the strength of His
crucifixion and His burial
through the strength of His
resurrection and His ascension,
through the strength of His descent
for the judgment of doom.

THIRD LORICA:

I arise today
through the strength
of the love of cherubim,
in obedience of angels,
in service of archangels,
in the hope of resurrection
to meet with reward.
In the prayers of patriarchs,
in preachings of the apostles,
in faiths of confessors,
in innocence of virgins,
in deeds of righteous men.

FOURTH LORICA:

I arise today
through the strength of heaven;
light of the sun,
splendour of fire,
speed of lightning,
swiftness of the wind,
depth of the sea,
stability of the earth,
firmness of the rock.

FIFTH LORICA:

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
from snares of the devil,
from temptations of vices,
from every one who desires me ill,
afar and anear,
alone or in multitude.

SIXTH LORICA:

I summon today all these powers
between me and evil,
against every cruel merciless power that
opposes my body and soul,
against incantations of false prophets,
against black laws of pagandom,
against false laws of heretics,
against craft of idolatry,
against spells of women
and smiths and wizards,
against every knowledge that corrupts
man’s body and soul.
Christ shield me today
against poison, against burning,
against drowning, against wounding,
so that reward may
come to me in abundance.

SEVENTH LORICA:

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 every man
who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man
who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.

EIGHTH LORICA:

I arise today
through a mighty strength,
the invocation of the Trinity,
through a belief in the Threeness,
through a confession of the Oneness
of the Creator of Creation.

(St Patrick, please pray for all of us.)
