Like many of the holidays we celebrate throughout the year, Saint Patrick’s Day is deeply rooted in Christianity. Traditionally an Irish holiday, Saint Patrick was actually a British Bishop who baptized thousands in Ireland. His good work is honored each year on March 17 all over the world. This year to help your family bring back some of the Christian emphasis to the holiday, here are some Irish prayers and blessings that you can say together on March 17 and throughout the rest of the year.

Irish Prayer

May God give you for every storm, a rainbow,

For every tear, a smile, for every care, a promise,

And a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share,

For every sigh, a sweet song, and an answer for each prayer.

Dearest Father in Heaven,

Bless this child and bless this day of new beginnings.

Smile upon this child and surround this child, Lord,

With the soft mantle of your love. Teach this child to follow in your footsteps,

And to live life in the ways of love, faith, hope and charity.

Bless This House

Bless this house, o Lord, we pray. Make it safe by night and day.

Bless these walls so firm and stout, keeping want and trouble out.

Bless the roof and chimney tall, let thy peace lie over all.

Bless the doors that they may prove ever open to joy and love.

Bless the windows shining bright, letting in God's heavenly light.

Bless the hearth a-blazing there, with smoke ascending like a prayer.

Bless the people here within... keep them pure and free from sin.

Bless us all, that one day, we may be fit, O lord, to dwell with Thee.

An Old Irish Blessing

Happy St. Patrick's Day from PureFlix.com

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.

An Old Celtic Blessing

May the blessing of light be on you— light without and light within.

May the blessed sunlight shine on you and warm your heart

till it glows like a great peat fire.
