Learn to pray with Patrick of Ireland—and to find your story in his own
One of Ireland’s most beloved figures, St. Patrick was a man who lived a life soaked in prayer. A risk-taker in the service of others—particularly women, slaves, and the poor—Patrick spent years enslaved, in which he found himself praying all the time—praying for freedom, for a warm place to sleep, or to return home. He never stopped. It was something he did with great intentionality, but also in the breath between one task and the next.
Praying with Patrick takes us on a journey through Patrick's life, allowing us to pray alongside him using his story and his actual prayers to deepen and enrich our own prayer lives. Each reading features a quote from Patrick, a scripture, a devotion, and a prayer such as:
A Prayer for Times of Trouble
A Prayer for When We Feel Helpless
A Prayer for Hope
A Prayer for Freedom
A Prayer for When You Don’t Fit In
A Prayer for the Presence of Christ
A Prayer for God’s Salvation
A Prayer in Times of Grief
A perfect gift for anyone who is fascinated by Ireland, the heroes of the faith, or prayer, Praying with Patrick will draw you deeper into conversation with a God who cares deeply about you and your needs, concerns, and worries. Just as Patrick experienced God’s presence in the rugged wilds of Ireland, may you experience God’s presence in a powerful and vibrant way.
