What are we carrying around in our pockets that when read, seen or touched gives us a good feeling? Do we carry a prayer, a poem, picture or a charm?

It has been said Astronaut Col. James Aldrin carried the following prayer of protection as he ventured to the moon on Apollo 11:

The light of God surrounds me
The love of God enfolds me
The power of God protects me
The presence of God watches over me
The mind of God guides me
The life of God flows through me
The laws of God direct me
The power of God abides within me
The joy of God uplifts me
The strength of God renews me
The beauty of God inspires me
Wherever I am God is (Prayer of Protection – J.D. Freeman)

And so it is, Amen
