A Prayer of Christ

“Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing.” 

John 15:4-5

A Prayer of Christ

Mind of Christ, inspire me.
Light of Christ, illumine me.
Peace of Christ, harmonize me.
Joy of Christ, free me.
Love of Christ, satisfy me.
Life of Christ, vitalize me.
Power of Christ, strengthen me.
Presence of Christ, protect me.
Christ, ever abiding within me,
Express in me Thine image and likeness.
Eyes of Christ, watch over my affairs.
Face of Christ, illumine my countenance.
Shoulders of Christ, bear my burdens.
Heart of Christ, quicken my compassion.
Arms of Christ, lift me up.
Hands of Christ, bless my undertakings.
Feet of Christ, direct my steps.
Body of Christ, establish my health.
Christ, ever near and about me,
Help me to triumph and to overcome.

–Frank B. Whitney – Daily Word, May 1935
