THE CRYSTAL LADY'S 

FAVORITE PRAYERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

A Prayer By Robert Louis Stevenson
Post 3-27-2007

We thank Thee for this place in which we dwell;
For the love that unites us.
For the peace accorded us this day
For the hope with which we expect the morrow;
For the health, the work, the food and
the bright skies that make our lives delightful.
For our friends in all parts of the earth.
and  our friendly helpers in this foreign isle.
Give us courage and gaiety and the quiet mind.
Spare to us our friends,
Soften us to our enemies
Bless us, if it may be, in all our innocent endeavors.
If it may not, give us strength to encounter that which is to come.
that we be brave in peril, constant in tribulation, temperate in wrath
and in all changes of fortune, and down to the gates of death,
loyal and loving one to another.

 


SANDY'S   PRAYER
This prayer is the one she  taught her  grandchildren.

NOW I LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP
 MAY THE LORD MY SOUL TO KEEP
 MAY THE ANGEL'S WATCH ME THRU THE NIGHT 
AND WAKE ME WITH THE MORNING LIGHT


A PRAYER
By Joan Estelle High

Thou God who made the world,
Create in me a new body.
Renewed in strength, vigorous and sound.
Remove from this body any blemish,
That would keep it from being the perfect body.
Cast the beam from my eyes that I may be healed now.
I know there is no disease, no illness, no blemish,
That you can not set straight.
To limit God is an error of my mind.

Thou God who made the world,
Create in me a new mind.
Renewed in strength, vigorous and sound.
Remove from my mind all sin and stain.
Make my mind more like the mind of Christ.

Thou God who made the world,
Call my soul to Thee.
Let me remember how it was in the Garden.
Where you walked with me in the cool of the day.
Renew my strength, give me support to go on.
As I will reach ever upward to my heavenly home,
Let me find at last the path that leads me back to Thee.
Amen.


THE 23rd PSALM
A PSALM OF DAVID

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me lie down in green pastures,
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul;
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; for thou  art with me
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou anointest my  head with oil,
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me,
All the days of my life.
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever..

Bedtime Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I should die before I wake.
I pray the lord my soul will take.
God Bless my house oh Lord I pray
Keep  it safe both night and day.
Bless my world  and all my kin
Keep me safe and free from sin.


Here is one of my favorite prayer from Unity Village.

The Light of God surrounds you;
The love of God enfolds you;
The power of God protects you;
The presence of God watch over you.
Where ever you are God  is!
