Prayer of Blessing


In sleep may we be made new this night.

In sleep may we let go of today

and release the worries of tomorrow.

In sleep may we know you

as Soul within our soul

as Guide within our dreams

as Lover within our longings.

In sleep may we be one with you

one with earth’s darkness

one with heaven’s shining

one with each creature dying

one with each newborn breath.

In sleep may we be one with you

and one with all.
