A Prayer to refresh our souls.


Soul of Christ, sanctify me

Body of Christ, save me

Blood of Christ, inebriate me

Water from the side of Christ, wash me

Passion of Christ, strengthen me

O good Jesus, hear me

Within thy wounds hide me

Suffer me not to be separated from Thee

From the malicious enemy defend me

In the hour of my death call me

And bidst me come to Thee

That with thy saints I may praise thee

Forever and ever.


Often we prayer with our own agendas and motives, often we set off well and fade quickly.

In this prayer our attention is fixed upon Christ, upon his grace that has entered our lives.

Oh how he longs for us to draw near to Him.

I've been away from my blog for several days now, although I've looked at it daily, thinking I ought to say something, but not knowing how to start to say things.

I came across this prayer in a new book I'm reading, surprise surprise!

"Becoming the answer to our prayers;" prayer for the ordinary radicals.

Take a moment to consider the words of the prayer and ask Jesus to walk into your life and stay with you. Relax in his presence friends it is truly lovely.

We'll speak soon
