St. Patrick's Breastplate with its familiar words, "Christ behind me, Christ before me" has been an expression of Christian faith for many years but what is the complete prayer, where did it come from, and did St. Patrick even write it?

Here Alf McCreary examines the history of the prayer and how in Victorian times, Mrs. Alexander the hymn-writer came to write the definitive version.

St. Patrick's Breastplate is beautifully illustrated with Celtic script, attractive drawings and the complete words of the hymn. ___________________________

Tell others about Jesus like St. Patrick did:

 Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor, Foreign Missionary, Prominent Evangelist, or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ___________________________
