Skip to comments.A Prayer before Logging onto the Internet
Posted on 09/22/2005 6:19:35 PM PDT by sionnsar
Almighty and eternal God,
who created us in Thy image
and bade us to seek after all that is good,
true and beautiful,
especially in the divine person of Thy only-begotten Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
grant we beseech Thee that,*
during our journeys through the internet
we will direct our hands and eyes
only to that which is pleasing to Thee
and treat with charity and patience
all those souls whom we encounter.
Through Christ our Lord.
Found by my friend, Philip,
and amended for those of a less catholic persuasion.
Omitted from original at * 'through the intercession of Saint Isadore, bishop and doctor'

Amen, too. Although I DID have to "log on to the internet" inorder to read and join in the prayer.
Ha, written with humor and in faith, and thanks for a beautiful prayer. I have recently begun praying before the logon, too.
I need to start praying before I sign on as well,and before I post a response sometimes too.
Great prayer. I stick with Hail Mary's for purity when surfing the internet or channels on TV. It gives something for me to do during downloads and commercials.
