A Daily Blessing
(based on St Patrick's Prayer)
Consecrate the Day is three years old today on St. Patrick’s Day! Yay!
I want to share my morning blessing based on St. Patrick’s prayer.
I pray this prayer every day upon awakening.
I arise today
in the name of the God of Creation
God of Sun, Moon, Stars and Sky;
God of Earth, Air, Fire and Water.
Christ before me,
Christ behind me,
Christ to my right,
Christ to my left,
Christ above me,
Christ below me.
Christ in the mind and heart
of everyone who thinks of me today.
May the blessing of Christ fall
on each person whose path crosses mine today.
I arise today in the power of the God of Creation.
As I pray this prayer, I stand and move freely with the words of the prayer, moving my body expressively in union with its words. It is a prayer of renewal at the beginning of each day. Say it like you mean it and feel the power of this amazing prayer!
I hope it will be a blessing to you this St. Patrick’s Day!
