Starting the day with prayer was always important to the early Christians and their prayers often invoked the presence of the Trinity – Father, Son and Spirit – to be with them through their often hard toil on the land, and to herald in the new day with God at its centre!

Prayer

Bless this day
all that I might see,
all that I might hear,
all that I might smell,
all that I might say.
Bless this day
all that I might serve,
all that I might comfort,
all that I might help,
all that I might guide.
Bless this day

Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of death. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
