Prayers of Dawn

Morning Praise

Beloved Dawnbringer, I thank you for this new day,
filled as ever with Your light and love.
Guide me to use it wisely in Your service,
keeping my steps on the sacred path,
which You illuminate so clearly for those who will but open their eyes.

Guide me to those who need my help,
whether in word or deed.
Grant us the courage and patience to give aid,
to end misery and pain and to seek and stamp out the evil of this world.
Let each act be undertaken in Your Name and be the herald of a new beginning.

Greeting of Dawn

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

Prayers of Dusk

Sunset Prayer

Oh Morninglord, hear my thanks at the setting of the sun,
for you have bathed me in Your Glorious Light
since the day began,
and given me the will and strength to do Your bidding.

Forgive me for my shortcomings as I humbly ask
that You remain with me through the coming night,
watching over me in the hours of darkness
that I may wake refreshed with hope and courage
to begin Your work anew in the dawn to come.

Healing Prayers

Healing

Glorious Lord of the Morn, Bringer of the Dawn, you shine brightly for your gifts of warmth and sunlight. Please give of your warmth to aid this body and renew its health. I humbly ask for you to cure the ills that afflict this body.

Ritual Of Smearing

In the name of the Lord of Dawn, the Fountain of Hope, the Giver of Joy, the Master of Mercy…..
And by the power of the aqua vitae donated by all those present, faithful servants of thy Glory….
O glorious Morninglord, Giver of Dawn and Hope….
We humbly ask you, release your healing energies on this young woman, so that her Hope may not be lost….

For even after the darkest of Nights, the Dawn shall come….
Thy Lips be Cleansed!
(touch the blood smeared statuette on person’s name_ wound)
(calls out mightily) Blessed be the DAWN!

For such is is thy Glory, to allow our meager sacrifice to infuse Hope anew!
Let the blood of the Corrupt, the Taint of Lycanthropy, the Scourge of Humanity begone!

Death Prayers

Morninglordian Death Prayer

O Dawnmaster, support this soul in her last hour by the strong arms of Thy Brightness and the fragrance of Thy consolations. Let Thy Shining Mercy pour over her and let Thy own body be her food, and Thy blood her sprinkling; and let Thy glorious Chanticleers and our own dear patrons smile on me, that in and through them all she may die as we desire to live, in Thy Arms, in Thy faith and in Thy love.

Birth Prayers

Prayer for Birth

Bringer of the Dawn and of Life itself, bless this new Life as it enters this World. Guard this new Life as it begins its journey under your bright Sun. Guide this Life as it walks in your Warmth and Light from this day forth.

Slaying Prayers

Slaying Prayer

Lord of the Morning,
Savior of the Light,
Hear me, I beg.
I kneel before thee,
here in Your Home,
Light on my Face, and Fire in my heart,
I do not Squint looking straight at the the Sun,
I am not blinded by fear,

Oh Morninglord, show Me Your Light,
Guide My Stake!
Shine my Path!
Help me Cleanse the Darkness in their Hearts,
So They May See a New Dawn,
For in the Dawn there is Life again,
For in the Dawn beauty reigns
And the Way is clearer,
for it dispels uncertainty,
fostering the hope of renewal.
It quells fear and its darkness recoils;
For the Morninglord’s radiance has come home once more.

Praise the Dawn!

Prayer against Undead

Morninglord, Watcher of the Dawn, Lord of Life, grant me your beacon of holy Sun and turn these wretched abominations from your Light!
Demon of darkness! In the name of the Morninglord, I command you to leave this place!

Praise of High Sun

Oh Morninglord,
I offer thanks for keeping me safe throughout the morning hours, and as the sun rises high at this midday hour I thank You for Your unfaltering light and unwavering love.

Grant me the strength to see the rest of this day to a safe conclusion, giving power to my voice that I may sing Your Praises, and potency to my weapon that I may vanquish Our enemies in Your Name.

Prayer of Slaying

Loving Father. Wise Uncle. Protective Guardian. Font of Wisdom. Morning Dawn.

Morninglord.

A prayer for the unrighteous.
A prayer for the sinners.
A prayer for men with dark hearts.
A prayer for men with dark souls.
A prayer for the unrepentant.
A prayer for every soul which laments it’s fate in the Shadows of Death.
A prayer for the damned.

May they Find Forgiveness in Your Light,

Oh Morninglord, hear my prayer.
I condemn this abomination!
This creature of the Undeath,

Oh Morninglord, in your Name,
A New Dawn comes,
From Ashes to Dust,
From death, to life,
My stake, it will Lay the Drinker to Eternal rest.

Praise the New Dawn!

Nevermore Prayers

Salutation to the Dawn

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn! Look to this Day! For it is Life, the very Life of Life. In its brief course lie all the Verities and realities of your Existence. The Bliss of Growth, The Glory of Action, The Splendor of Beauty; For Yesterday is but a Dream, And Tomorrow is only a Vision; But Today well lived makes Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness, And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope. Look well therefore to this Day! Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!

Reflection Prayer

The tide of the Night and darkness sway and corrupts; false impressions spread; appearing as reality for those that do not Walk the Light.
The fog is thick; it easily sticks and becomes comparable to Lake Zarovich’s murky waters,
Confusion misleads from the truth, a deterrent from reality causing unnecessary stumbling blocks in the road.
The darkness tries to put out the light but your Light oh Morninglord, shines bright in the darkest night.
Thank You Morninglord.
You are victorious!
You will not fail us as your plan will be accomplished no matter what the circumstance.
Though darkness travels, it will fail.
Your Light oh Bringer of Dawn, it will sail.
The immediate is seen, the future unseen, differences in between; all is in your hands, Oh Morninglord.
Thank You for Your Love and Grace,
Thank You for Your Hope and Succor,
Nothing compares to You.
Your will shall be done.
In Your Name,

Praise the Dawn!

Morninglord Prayer to the Dawn

Mighty Morninglord, your light is born for us and the dawn is given to us.
Your eternal Word leaped down from heaven in the silent watches of the night,
and now your Church is filled with wonder at the nearness of the light.
Open our hearts to receive your light and increase our vision with the rising of the dawn,
that our lives may be filled with your glory and peace.

A Shining Path

Shine Your light where my foot will tread,
to wake me when my eyes take rest,
light the way for sword and heart
to follow where You think is best -

Lend me Your strength in times of need;
in darkness, with my heart in chains -
Your light still shines across the sea
and I forget my earthly pains.

A Dawn Prayer

The sun washes over the Land
And the remainder of the Night is gone
As if in greeting It caresses us with his Warm Hand,
And the song of Hopes blends with the Morning breeze with the refrain of the New Dawn.

Morning Sun awake from Night

Morning Sun awake from night
Blessing from Your Power’s might
The corner of my bed holds tight
Wishing to keep out the light
But where glory’s providence be
Let me be held by rays of Thee.
Fly away stars, wishing is gone
Prayer is might, ever so strong
The break of dawn brings the day
When the clouds are cascaded away
Let not one tremble of fear be shown
The warmth of Your light prevails: chill, “BE GONE!”
Happiness shall reign with thee
All sovereign above the trees.

Morning Has Broken

Morning has broken
Like the first morning,
Blackbird has spoken
Like the first bird.
Praise for the singing!
Praise for the morning!
Praise for them, springing
Fresh from the Word!

Sweet the rains new fall

Sunlit from heaven,
Like the first dew fall
On the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness
Of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness
Where His feet Pass.

Mine is the sunlight!

Mine is the morning,
Born of the one light
Martyn saw play!
Praise with elation,
Praise every morning,
Morninglords re – creation
Of the new day!

Song of Dawn

Dawn approaches, lift your eyes,
look above to light-streaked skies.
Raise your hands in thanks and praise,
to greet the new day’s first sunrays.

Praise The Dawnbringer, show your love,
give your thanks that up above
He banishes darkness for our sake,
that we in love His hand will take.

Warming, cheering, cleansing light,
spreading slowly, spreading bright,
we take heart from each new morn,
Thank the Morninglord for for this dawn.

Prayer for Sun

Oh Morninglord,
Shine Your light where my foot will tread,
to wake me when my eyes take rest,
light the way for sword and heart
to follow where You think is best -

Lend me Your strength in times of need;
in darkness, with my heart in chains -
Your light still shines across the lake
and I forget my earthly pains.

Nevermore Night Adoration

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

Nevermore Night Supplication

Grant me, O Morninglord, a mind to know you,
A heart to seek you,
Wisdom to find you,
Conduct pleasing to you,
Faithful perseverance in toiling for you,
And a hope of finally embracing you.
