I am often asked about prayer and other spiritual disciplines now we are in grace. The obvious answer is that prayer and other disciplines become delights not duties. But the key to it all is recognition.

Here is a lovely example of precisely that:

AN OLD STRONG PRAYER
=====================
St.Patrick…He said daily….
I am risen with Christ. Through Him I live Today.
I am bound to Him.
* there where He is ” there I am too
* that which He is ” that I am too
* that which He does ” that I do too
* that which He says ” that I say too
* that which is subject to Him ” is also subject to me
* that which is obedient to Him ” is also obedient to me
I live by the power of His resurrection…
* I live from His fullness
* I live from all His blessings
* I live from His righteousness
That which served Him ” that serves me too
* that which followed Him ” that follows me too
* that which loved Him ” that loves me too
* that which hated Him ” that hates me too
* that which took Him in ” that takes me in too
* that which He needed, that I need too
* that which He did not need ” that I do not need too
* that which comforted Him ” that comforts me too
* through that which He went ” I go too
* the road He walked ” that road I walk too
* that which held Him ” holds me too
* that which helped Him ” helps me too
* that which protected Him ” protects me too
* that which led Him ” leads me too

* that which kept Him from sin ” keeps me from sin too
* that which kept Him healthy ” keeps me healthy too
* that which stood by His side ” stands by my side too
* that which He did not fear ” I do not fear too
* that, through which He drove out demons “through that I drive them out too
* that which made Him strong ” makes me strong too
* that which was over Him ” is over me too
* that which made Him boundless ” makes me boundless too
* that which helped Him accomplish His mission ” helps me accomplish mine too
* that which held Him above, always ” holds me above, always too
Jesus Christ
* He is before me, and behind me
* He is under me, and over me
* He is with me, and in me
* He is on my right and on my left
* He is with me, when I wake up in the morning
* He is with me, when the day is hard and difficult
* He is with me, when things don’t work out
* He thinks for me
* He speaks to me
* He sees me
I live to day by the power of the heavens
By the power of the Holy Spirit…
