Preparing for Michaelmas – September 29

Michael Prayer

‘Let us then set to work to discipline our will,
let us endeavour to awaken within us
each morning and each evening.’

In the Morning

O Michael,
Under your protection I place myself,
With your guidance I connect myself,
So that this day becomes an image
Of your destiny-ordering Will.

O Michael,
Under your protection I place myself,
Wholeheartedly and with a will,
So that this day which is now beginning
Will be an image of your destiny ordered Will.

In the Evening

I carry my sorrows into the setting sun,
Place all my worries into her radiating womb,
Purified in love, transformed into light,
They return as helping thoughts,
As strength for self-sacrificing deeds.

by Rudolf Steiner
