Prayer sent in by Miceal FitzPatrick, Tubberboe Durrow.
God bless Friday and Good Friday. The Jews have been passing by with sharp spears in their hands. They pierced our Blessed Lord from this Heart and into the Hand His Blessed Mother standing by with heavy heart and dismal cry.

Anyone that says this prayer three times by day and three times by night need never fear a sudden death or danger and inside the gates of hell shall never enter.

As I lay down myself to sleep
My heart and soul I give to God to keep
And if I die before I wake
I pray to God my soul to take
If any evil come to me
I pray the B Virgin to protect and strengthen me.
