Prayer by St Richard of Chichester (1197-1253)

Thanks be to thee, my Lord Jesus Christ
For all the benefits thou hast won for me,
For all the pains and insults thou hast borne for me.
O most merciful redeemer, Friend and Brother,
May I know thee more clearly,
Love thee more dearly
And follow thee more nearly,
Day by day.

The Sarum Primer (1558)

God be in my head, and in my understanding
God be in my eyes and in my looking
God be in my mouth and in my speaking
God be in my heart and in my thinking;
God be at my end and in my departing.

A blessing (from the Book of Numbers)

The Lord bless you and keep you
The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you,
The lord lift up the light of his countenance upon you and give you peace, now and always

A modern Celtic Blessing (by John Bell)

In our heads and on our houses,
The blessing of God;
On our coming and going,
The peace of God;
In our life and believing,
The love of God;
At our end and new beginning,
The arms of God to welcome us
And bring us home.
