Celebrating Saint Patrick’s day with Saint Patrick prayers have been consistent all through the years. March 17th every year is when people all over the world come around to celebrate Saint Patrick’s day. Inspired by the life and times of A Saint in Ireland, Saint Patrick who lived from 385AD to 461AD. Numerous individuals have caught wind of the history of Saint Patrick as a man who strikingly defeated a wide range of threats to convey the Christian message to the Irish, and he is regularly hailed as an incredible legend.
In any case, Patrick was only a normal man who lived in God, because of the immense power of God that he wielded. This power was given to him by God because of his ability to pray, something he did in great respect to God and in faith.
Saint Patrick prayer and Saint Patrick himself showed us the power of prayer in different ways and forms.
Patrick dedicated his life and time to serve God
He loved to serve God so much, a position he rightly stated as:
“The love of God and his fear grew in me more and more, as did the faith, and my soul was roused, so that, in a single day, I have said as many as a hundred prayers and in the night, nearly the same… I prayed in the woods and on the mountain, even before dawn. I felt no hurt from the snow or ice or rain.”
It was love that powered Patrick’s supplication life – not a want to persuade God to give him something, not a feeling of commitment to satisfy, not an endeavor to win something great from God, and not a situation to awe other individuals. Patrick essentially needed to invest energy speaking with God since he adored being in the presence of the almighty.
What a great man he is!
Saint Patrick Prayer – Prayer is a good thing to do
Patrick made prayer an essential part of his life, talking to God in every situation he found himself. He made it a task to talk to God from when he wakes up each day to when he finds himself in difficult situations.
To Pray is to empower oneself
At the point when Patrick fearlessly pushed ahead with his work for God’s kingdom, he was hit by extraordinary restriction from people who detested what he was doing. Individuals endeavored to kill him a few times since they saw the Gospel message he lectured as a danger to the power they wield as agnostic pioneers. Once, while Patrick was talking to God on a mountain, a vast gathering of evil spirits showed in physical conform to him.
They showed up as a thick billow of feathered creatures of prey that was attempting to occupy and threaten him. Be that as it may, Patrick called on the spirit of God for help, and as the Holy Spirit came down, the devilish flying creatures scattered away.
Patrick composed articulately about the profound spiritual battle in “Saint Patrick’s Breastplate”: “I arise today/Through God’s strength to pilot me:/God’s might to uphold me,/God’s wisdom to guide me,/God’s eye to look before me,/God’s ear to hear me,/God’s word to speak for me,/God’s hand to guard me,/God’s way to lie before me,/God’s shield to protect me,/God’s host to save me/From snares of demons,/From temptations of vices,/From everyone who shall wish me ill,/Afar and near,/Alone and in multitude.”
People will always attempt to reach out spiritual to counter us doing God’s work but it is important we know that God is just around the corner and he is ready to fight our spiritual battles. Saint Patrick’s prayer at the mountain made us realize that when we call on God’s name in time of trouble, he will come to our rescue.
God answers prayers
At the point when Patrick supplicated, he didn’t simply present a rundown of solicitations and expectation that perhaps something great would happen a while later. Patrick was extremely sure that God would answer his prayers, so he supplicated with genuine trust and complete confidence in God. Sometimes God answered his prayers in the most discreet way possible and at different circumstances, God answered him in amazing ways.
One day, while Patrick was praying outside in Ireland at the time he was imprisoned there (Irish looters had grabbed him in his nation of origin of England and sent him to Ireland to function as a shepherd for an Irish chieftain), Patrick had an astounding experience with one of God’s angels. The blessed messenger of God, whom Patrick named Victor, showed up on a mountain close to Patrick and revealed to Patrick that he was the angel of God sent to guide him. “It is great that you’ve been fasting and asking,” Victor stated, as per Patrick’s records of the experience. “You will soon go to your own particular nation; your ship is prepared.” Victor at that point gave Patrick direction about how to discover the ship that would take him back to England.
Patrick had anticipated that an answer would in the long run come to his supplications, each day for the six years of his servitude – for the chance to come back to England and be joined together with his family again. He didn’t know when the appropriate response would come, yet he continued asking with confidence. At the point when God sent the appropriate response, it was through the guardian angel who called his supplication “great”!’
We can always ask anything from God
Saint Patrick always made sure he just does not only pray but also prepare himself to hear the voice of God. He cleared his mind in all openness of what God has to say to him. He was always responsive and alert to God’s words and God’s voice.
One of the ways Patrick got notification from God was through dreams. In one key dream Patrick had, he said he heard the voices of Irish individuals “crying as though with one voice: ‘We beseech you, blessed youth, that you should come and might walk again among us.’ And I was stung strongly in my heart…”
Patrick was astounded that God was getting back to him to head back to Ireland – the place he had at last broken free from, after a time of servitude. However, after God tested Patrick to pick faith over despair, Patrick said “yes” to introducing the Gospel message to Irish.
This Saint Patrick’s Day, given Patrick’s life and Saint Patrick prayer give you the necessary inspiration to move you to accomplish something with prayers and the word of God. Make Patrick a great example as you make supplications to God, and see how the grace of God will follow you everywhere you go.
Let us always remember to say a prayer on Saint Patrick’s Day
In 433 A.D., history discloses to us that Saint Patrick was appealing to God for God’s perfect security in his work and service in Ireland while confronting evil adversaries. He composed this prayer known as Saint Patrick’s Breastplate, which is still generally known and recounted today.
God soon opened the entryway for him to impart Christ to the Irish Ruler Laoghaire and his subjects, and enabled him to be a piece of conveying them out of the terrible hold paganism had on them into the welcoming arms of Jesus Christ. St. Patrick was a man who knew much about obscurity, hardship, and works of the enemy. He had so much time being a slave after being kidnapped by pirates at age 16. What’s more, it was in those years that he later learned what it is and means to be under the protection of the almighty God.
The life of St. Patrick is still so amazing to us today, that even in the darkest of times, God will always be with his people. He can’t help but to favor us and let his blessings follow us in all spheres of our lives. Because he is a great God, he makes sure that nothing gets away from His notice. He watches over all, and we can assume that we are all under the canopy of the almighty. He’s got us all covered.
