Time for Prayer

 

MORNING PRAYER

FATHER IN HEAVEN

WHEN THE THOUGHT OF YOU

WAKESIN OUR HEARTS

LET IT NOT WAKE LIKE

A FRIGHTENED BIRD

BUT LIKE A CHILD WAKING

FROM IT'S SLEEP WITH A

HEAVENLY SMILE

MIDDAY PRAYER

MAY THE SUN SHINE WARM

UPON YOUR FACE.

MAY THE RAINS FALL SOFTLY

UPON YOUR FIELDS.

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN

MAY GOD HOLD ME IN THE

HOLLOW OF HIS HAND

TRADITIONAL GAELIC BLESSING

 

EVENING PRAYER

MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU

MAY HE GIVE LIGHT TO YOUR

HEART WITH LOVING WISDOM

AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU

WITH ETERNAL KNOWLEDGE.

AND WHEN YOU SLEEP

MAY HE LIFT UP HIS LOVING

COUNTENANCE UPON YOU

FOR ETERNAL PEACE.
