Prayer of Renewal Adapted from “The Breast Plate of St. Patrick”
We call upon the Most Holy Trinity – The Three in One and One in Three. Trinity of God the Father, be our rock and our refuge. Grant us the strength to stand when waves of disaster crash against us. Trinity of God the Son, be our redeemer and our salvation. Hold us close to your heart and forgive all of our sins. Trinity of God the Holy Spirit, be our comfort and our guide. Bless us and guide us until we overflow with your love. Thank you Most Holy Trinity – The Three in One and One in Three, of whom all nature hath creation. Eternal Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: Praise to the Lord of our salvation. Amen.
Scripture Matthew 28:16-20
16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Statement of Faith The Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
