A Celtic Family Blessing

Praying a daily blessing is one of the best ways to encourage your family before school and work begin the day. This was our family tradition for years with our children, and we found that gathering together for a short morning prayer bonded us closer together.

One of my favorite Celtic blessings is taken from the Morning Office in Celtic Daily Prayer by the Northumbria Community. It’s a simple blessing for family and friends and one I’ve used at the close of our Father’s House women’s gatherings. I’ve pulled this one out of my prayer journal when my children have gone on journeys or friends have moved away. Perhaps you’ll find it to be one you want to pray as you gather your family together before the start of each day.

May the Peace of the Lord Christ Go With You

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you,

Wherever He may send you.

May He guide you through the wilderness,

Protect you through the storm.

May He bring you home rejoicing

At the wonders He has shown you.

May He bring you home rejoicing

Once again into our doors.

Do you have a blessing you pray over your family each day? I’d love to hear about it.

In Him together, Susan Gaddis
