” Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, ‘Wait and Hope.” ― Alexandre Dumas


Prayer for Protection

Prayer for Protection is a poem written by Unity minister James Dillet Freeman for all soldiers during World War II.  It was also carried into space by astronaut Buzz Aldrin on the first manned moon landing in 1969.

Individuals and churches use this beloved prayer as a reminder that wherever we go, God is.  Often the words “and all is well” are added to the end.

I did not grow up with “canned prayers” but I find the words of the Prayer for Protection extremely helpful and comforting, especially during times when words just won’t come.  If you are not familiar with the Prayer for Protection visit one of the links below and get acquainted.

“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”Mother Teresa
