I begin most days with this prayer of encompassing and blessing. This prayer is based on the Prayer of St. Patrick. I have created movements that embed this prayer in my body as well as my soul.
(Stay tuned for a video soon.)
I arise today in the power 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 heart and mind of every person who thinks of me today
Christ in everyone I greet today
Christ within me seeking to love and live fully and freely
I arise today in the power of the God of creation
