Irish Prayer for a Journey


An Irish prayer for you. The Irish are known for their music and poems. But they are also known for their prayers and blessings. There are many well known ones but the one below is one of the more famous. It can be used on many occasions but as you can tell from the words, it is especially fit when you or a loved one is going on a journey. Why not memorize it and recite it at right times? Calling on God’s blessing and protection is something we should all learn to do. Enjoy this old Irish 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.
