The Breastplate of St. Patrick of Ireland

Christ with me,

Christ before me,

Christ behind me,

Christ beneath me,

Christ above me,

Christ within me,

Christ on my right,

Christ on my left,

Christ when I lie down,

Christ when I sit down,

Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,

Christ in the eye that sees me,

Christ in the ear that hears me.”  

 (Breastplate of St  Patrick of Ireland, Prayer Book – In Accordance with the Tradition of the Eastern Orthodox Church, Kindle Loc 198-202)
