Prayer Before a Crucifix

An adaptation of the earliest recorded prayer of St Francis of Assisi in San Damiano by Br. Michael Daly CJ. 2008

 

Most High and Glorious God,

Please bring your light to the darkness of my heart and give me true faith in you,

Firm hope

and Perfect love.

 

Lord Jesus Christ let me by the counsel of your Holy Spirit,

have right feelings and knowledge

so that I may properly undertake the task you have given me.

To show forth the glorious beauty of you my Lord and God.

 

Amen

Circle Me Lord

Wash Over My Soul

Wash over my soul healing love of Jesus, wash over my soul. Strengthen me to endure to the end, wash over my soul, wash over my soul.

 

Wash over my soul healing love of Jesus, wash over my soul Fill me with your love that heals, Wash over my soul, wash over my soul.

 

Wash over my soul, healing love of Jesus, wash over my soul. Cleanse my wounds from long ago. Wash over my soul, wash over my soul.

 

Wash over my soul, healing love of Jesus, wash over my soul Free me from bitter regret, wash over my soul, wash over my soul.

Wash over my soul, healing love of Jesus, wash over my soul. Heal the wounds to others I’ve caused, wash over my soul, wash over my soul.

Sr. Beth Willis, CJ.

Circle me, Lord.
Keep protection near
And danger afar.

Circle me, Lord
Keep hope within.
Keep doubt without.

Circle me, Lord.
Keep light near
And darkness afar.

Circle me, Lord.
Keep peace within.
Keep evil out.
