prayer for a good day

Bird in morning sky

Bird in morning sky

From Grey to Gold
(a prayer blessing for someone to have a good day)

May you find a gift this morning
Laid out for you in the sky.
A beautiful reminder
That sets your hope in flight.

May you notice birds above you
That soar and ride the winds.
And know that as you lift your prayer
God lifts your heart and sings.

May you hear the sweet birds chirping
May you smell the fresh cool air
And know that God's love is all around
Holding you so dear.

May this day be like a present
That fills your heart with awe
And takes your world from grey to gold
And soothes your very soul.

You Walk Beside Me
(a short prayer for a good day at work)

Lord, You walk beside me
You are always there.
Come into my workplace
Go with me everywhere.

Lord, Your hand will guide me
Your light will show the way.
Come into my thinking
Journey with me today.

This is your day

(an early morning prayer for a good day)

Light gently arises
The morning beckons
This is your day,
A gift.
A day that you have made.
I listen to the birds singing
And I leave behind my slumber
To awake.
I awake with you Lord.
We arise together.

May this working day
Be full of wonder,
Wonder at the morning
That carries me, through each moment
Filled with thanks and praise.

I will dwell in the shadow of Almighty
Yes I'll dwell in the shadow of Almighty
In Your arms I'll rest, for here is peace

In Your arms I'll rest, for here is peace
And my heart will be rich indeed
Yes my heart will be rich indeed

Our Father, Abba Father
Held in healing, hope is with me
Held in healing, hope is with me

Dwell at Christmas

Dwell album cover from Prayerscapes

In this season of giving, it is hard sometimes to cut through the commercial trappings, rise above the “perfect Christmas” expectations and truly connect with loved ones to give a gift that is really yearned for. We (like most creatives) sometimes find it hard to “push” our own work, to believe that our music can Read More

A Beautiful Prayer

Beautiful Tree Branches hanging low down

I think one of our deepest longings as humans is to know that there is a purpose for our lives, that we have a role to play in this world. Thankfully as Christians we can be certain that life isn’t just a random series of events. God the creator of the earth and the heavens Read More
