A Midday Prayer

Angels, bearers of good tiding, awaken me to joy,to divine presence whenever I experience what is good, true, and beautiful.Let me take great joy in recognizing beauty in the eyes of other good people.It is there if I take the time to really see it.


Scripture Reading

Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people:

Luke 2:9-10


Silence

Relax and let go for a few minutes and allow your body to feel itself breathing. Let go of the cares of the morning and prepare to face what lies ahead.


Blessing of self: I affirm myself for…


Blessing of the lunch

Bless Lord those that have labored in the fields for this food

Bless those who have provided for me

Bless those who gather

Bless the breaking of the bread

Christ beside me

Christ behind me

Christ around me

Christ at the table


This is a Celtic pattern of midday prayer.

Try it. Blessings
