Celtic Style prayers upon awakening


Prayers at the start of the day


I arise today
embraced in the arms
of God the Father
empowered by the strength
of God the Spirit
immersed in the love
of God the Son
I arise today
in the company
of the Trinity
Father, Spirit and Son
I arise today




Bless this day
all that I might see
all that I might hear
all that I might smell
all that I might say
Bless this day




all that I might comfort
all that I might help
all that I might guide
Bless this day




Into your presence I come, Lord
a few moments of quietness
closeness
in a busy world
that demands my attention
Breathe on me now
that I might know your power
to see this day though




Be thou my vision, Lor
this day and every day
the centre of my life
the focus of my thoughts
Be thou my wisdom, Lord
the inspiration of my words
in every situation
your spirit my support




Christ, our all in all
Bless both morning and evening
Bless our waking and sleeping
Bless our travelling and arriving
Bless our working and playing
Bless our listening and talking
Bless our beginning and ending
Christ, our all in all
Bless both morning and evening




I arise today
conscious of the forgiveness
of God the Father
conscious of the companionship
of God the Son
conscious of the guidance
of God the Spirit
conscious of the unity
of the Trinity
Three in One




God of light and God of night
Creator of seed and mountain
raindrop and fountain
We bring our offering of praise.
God of right and God of might
Lover of child and childless
rich and homeless
We bring our offering of praise.




I awaken to your world
I listen to your world
I gaze at your world
I breathe in your world
I feel your world
I rejoice in your world
