With the news warning our area of some major storms coming our way I thought I would share a prayer for protection against storms that a good friend (MP) shared with me a few years ago. It has given me comfort during some pretty bad storms since she shared it, and if you know me you know I need it when the weather gets bad. (This one comes from The Pieta Prayer Book
Now before I go on to the prayer, if you have any outstanding prayers please feel free to share. I especially love praying prayers that others have had positive experiences with.
Please use the prayers anyway you wish. Take it or leave it. Or if you have one you like better share it and I will add it to this blog so others can chose.
I prayer for your safety and peace. God bless.
The Prayer or Blessing Against Storms
Jesus Christ, a King of Glory, has come in peace. God became man, and the Word was made flesh. Christ was born of a virgin. Christ suffered. Christ was crucified. Christ died. Christ rose fromt he dead. Christ ascended into heaven. Christ conquers. Christ reigns. Christ orders. May Christ protect us from all storms and lightning. Christ went through their midst in peacde and the word was made flesh. Christ is with us with Mary. Flee, you enemy spirits, because the Lion of the Generation of Juda, the Root of David, has won. Holy God! Holy Powerful God! Holy Immortal God! Have mercy on us. Amen!
(This prayer originated in a convent and church in Lisbon, Portugal. Pope Innocent III, 1198-1216, ordered it published.)
