Assorted Prayers and blessings

Spare Us the Fall
May the roof above
never fall in,
May we belown

never fall out.
—An Irish grace quoted in Favourite Prayers

There is a mother's heart in the heart of God.
And 'tis his delight to break the bread of love and truth for his children.
a Hebridean mother's prayer

Big Sea, Little Boat
Dear God, be good to me;
The sea is so wide,
And my boat is so small.
fisherman's prayer—
