Prayers Around the World – Old Irish Blessing


Although this is a familiar blessing, often put to music, take a moment and ask the Lord to receive it in a fresh way.  Who would you pray this over?  What are the natural and spiritual meanings in the symbolism used?  If you wrote it today, how would you word it?

Enjoy this timeless blessing!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.


Praying that today you feel held in the palm of God’s hand, safe, protected, and most of all deeply loved!
