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.
