Emails must be received by noon the day prior to the service. In your email, please provide the following information:

I Arise Today
Through the strength of heaven; Light of the sun, Splendor of fire. Speed of lightning
Swiftness of the wind, Depth of the sea, Stability of the earth, Firmness of the rock..
I Arise Today
Through God's strength to pilot me; God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to guide me, God's eye to look before me, God's ear to hear me, God's word to speak for me, God's hand to guard me, God's way to lie before me, God's shield to protect me, God's hosts to save me. Afar and anear, Alone or in a mulitude. Christ shield me today against wounding .Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above 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.
I Arise Today
Through the mighty strength Of the Lord of creation.Amen.
