Thank you for the healing that you are working deep inside me.
Thank you that you are healing my mind, my body and my spirit.
Thank you that you are guiding me on the path of love and light.
Thank you for this day.
Thank you for the strength to do as you will guide me today.
Open the ears of my heart to listen closely for your guidance.
And to be a channel of your holy power.
Thank you that this day I will have the opportunity to make the life
of at least one person, a little bit brighter,
Through your grace, by your grace, living in your grace.
This prayer was given to me by a friend as an Archangel Michael Protection Prayer. It has been of comfort to me. I keep an open mind about Angels and would love to hear from anyone who has had any kind of experiences that you consider to be Angelic.
I was told a quite unforgettable story by someone who was saved, when he was 5 years old, from a vicious dog attack, by a voice who guided him. The voice was so clear, he has never forgotten it, and it told him what to do when he was completely panicked and had no idea how to protect himself. It was this early experience which had resulted in a life long, unwavering belief in God. When I asked my friend, did he think it was an Angel who had communicated with him or did he think it was God? He answered, “there is no difference”.
Archangel Michael Protection Prayer
Scribe me a fortress, issue of light
Afford me thy presence, of angel might.
Cast me the circle, impenetrable band,
Raise high thy fiery sword, in thy hand.
Beloved protector, divine in thy power,
Accost thee, the darkness
Enfold me this hour.
Note: The angelic sword is symbolic of truth.
Thank you that your strength is available at all times for us to draw on,
Guide me to you today, give me a heart that can serve you
Help me to overcome everything in me which turns me away from you
Fill me with Your Holy, life giving spirit.
May each and every thing I do today be done in a spirit of love and service.
Deep inside of each one of us is light that is utterly peaceful
It is the you in me and the me in you.
It is unaffected and undisturbed by the outer world.
It is unchanged by birth and death.
It is not limited by time and space.
Teachers can teach you about the world, but only you can come to know the inner you.
This inner light is always pure, ever present, and free of sorrow.
Learn to rest in the Self.
Come to know the Bliss.

I pray for the patience, to wait on you silently
In silence You said you will hear me.
Silently You will lift me,
Out of the mud and the mire.
I pray in my silence you will raise me,
and set my feet on your rock.
You alone are the firm place to stand.
I pray for a heart that can praise You,
I pray for a heart that can trust You
to take the burdens I cling to.
To give them all over to You.
Inspiration taken from Psalm 40: 1-3
I pray today for a heart filled with loving kindness.
I pray for a heart that can wish well to all who have harmed me.
I acknowledge I cannot do this alone, I need to be filled with Your love.
There are wounds so deep, that only You can touch that hidden place
I pray for Your Divine love to caress the scars on my soul
and replace the hurt, the anger, the pain with Your peace.
That through Your love, I can send blessings to my enemies
and through blessing them, conquer all hate, and heal the wounds
they have made.
I stand amid the eternal ways
And what is mine shall know my face.
The stars come nightly to the sky
The tidal wave unto the sea.
Nor time, not space, nor deep, nor high
Can keep my own away from me.
Quoted on the title page of “A Woman in a Man’s World”, by Helen Moyes
Thank you for the strangers we meet,
that through Your blessing become friends.
Open my heart that I may be drawn to those
who have a unique blessing to give.
And to whom I am drawn to bless in return.
May we each shine a light on the darkness,
which we have failed to heal on our own.
I pray for Your guidance to meet them,
the friends that I have not yet seen.
And I pray for the strength and the joy,
to greet them, in love and compassion.
From a hymn of St Ambrose, a morning prayer of the Benedictine Monastery
Drive far away from us, the darkness that surrounds us now.
That we may live in holy joy, and share your light of happiness.
