Lady’s Prayer

Our Mother
Who live within us
Wonderful is thy name
Thy blessings come
To everyone on Earth
O Queen of Heaven.
Bless now this day our daily food
And help us enjoy the pleasures
That you bestow upon us.
And guide us so we may harm none
And show us the way to the balance.
For thine is the laughter.
And the love,
And the moonlight forever.
Amen.

Share Your Glorious Light with the World

Share Your Glorious Light with the World
Benediction
By James Morison
Within each of our hearts there is a most glorious light.
Go forth, and let its spark help you understand what troubles both you and others;
Go forth, and let its light of reason be a guide in your decisions;
Go forth, and bring its ray of hope to those in need of help in both body and spirit, that they may find healing;
Go forth, and fan the flames of passion to help heal our world;
Go forth, and spread the warm glow of love, pushing back the darkness of the world;
Go forth, and share your glorious light with the world.

Prayer of Praise and Adoration

My heart is filled with adoration
When I lift my eyes to you.
For you are Lord and Lady of all creation,
You make all things new.

My soul is filled with lasting peace
When I close my eyes to sleep.
For you are Lord and Lady, you’re right beside me
I’m safe within your keep.

My mind is filled with inspiration
When I open my eyes anew.
For you are hope and love outspoken,
Your words are full of truth.

My life is full of aspiration
When I see through eyes that weep.
For you are Lord and Lady of the grand and broken,
May I be your hands and feet.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.
Amen.

(Anglican Book of Common Prayer, 1662).
