Prayers of the Saints: “Day by Day” Prayer of St. Richard of Chichester

Prayer of St. Richard

The following prayer was made immensely popular by the play Godspell where it was put to music in the song entitled, "Day by Day."

Thanks be to thee, our Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits which thou hast given me [us],
for all the pains and insults which thou hast borne for me [us].
O most merciful Redeemer, Friend, and Brother,
may I [we] know thee more clearly,
love thee more dearly,
and follow thee more nearly, day by day. Amen

St Richard of Chichester, pray for us.
