A prayer for God's safe keeping

For God’s Safe Keeping

    May the strength of God pilot us.
    May the power of God preserve us.
    May the wisdom of God instruct us.
    May the hand of God protect us.
    May the way of God direct us.
    May the shield of God defend us.
    May the host of God guard us
    against the snares of the evil one
    And the temptations of the world.
    May Christ be with us
    Christ above us
    Christ in us
    Christ before us.
    May thy salvation O Lord,
    Be always ours
    This day and for evermore

The Edge of Glory: Prayers in the Celtic Tradition, by David Adam

Psalm 121:title–8 (ESV)

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? 
2 My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. 
3 He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. 
4 Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 
5 The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade on your right hand. 
6 The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. 
7 The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.
 8 The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.
