wallPrayer for Boundaries

O God, you set upon our borders sentinels who are never silent and watchers who never sleep; guard and protect the boundaries of my soul. You shelter us under the shadow of your wings; create within me a safe place in which to heal. Speak tenderly to my spirit, Holy Mother, and teach me to stand upright in the center of my being. Comfort my fear, that I may walk freely within my own sanctuary, and become a place of welcome to those who come in peace. In the name of your dear child, Jesus. Amen.
