Daily Prayer

Words of praise and devotion from religions
around the world

  • The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. Bible — Numbers 6:24-26


  • May the sun always shine on your windowpane; May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain; May the hand of a friend always be near you; May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you. — Irish Blessing 


  • O my great and good Creator, how much I owe to you. that in your mercy you raised me from nothing to make me what I am. What can I possibly do to bless your name or to thank you enough for your inestimable goodness? Yet, my Creator, instead of uniting myself to you by loving service, my inordinate desires have made me a rebel. I have cut myself off from you by preferring sin, dishonoring you as if you were not my Creator. O my God, with all my heart I offer you myself, as you have made me. I dedicate and consecrate myself to you. — St. Francis de Sales


  • May the long time sun
    Shine upon you,
    All love surround you,
    And the pure light within you
    Guide your way on.
    Kundalini Yoga - Farewell Blessing


  • I find you, Lord, in all things and in all
    my fellow creatures, pulsing with your life;
    as a tiny seed you sleep in what is small
    and in the vast you vastly yield yourself.
     -- Rainer Marie Rilke


  • O Thou,
    the Sustainer of
    our bodies, hearts, and souls,
    Bless all
    that we thankfully
    Amen -- Nazr - mealtime blessing - Pir-o-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan
