May flowers spring up where your feet touch the earth.
May the feet that walked before you bless your every step.
May the weather that’s important be the weather of your heart.
May all your intentions find their way into the heart of the Divine.
May your prayers be like flowers strewn for other pilgrims.
May your heart find meaning in unexpected events.
May friends who are praying for you carry you along the way.
May friends who are praying for you be carried in your heart.
May the circle of life encircle you along the way.
May the broken world ride on your shoulders.
May you carry your joy and your grief in the backpack of your soul.
May you remember all the circles of prayer throughout the world.
Guardian of our souls,
guide us on our way today.
Keep us safe from harm.
Deepen our relationship with you
and all your family.
Strengthen your love
That we may be a presence
of your peace
in our world.
