The Prayer That Went to the Moon: James Dillet Freeman's "Prayer for Protection"
Written at Unity Village in 1940 by James Dillet Freeman, the "Prayer for Protection" is beloved by millions.
In 1969, astronaut Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin carried the prayer with him on the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. The “Prayer for Protection” has gone on to become one of the most beloved lines of prayerful poetry ever written in the English Language. http://www.unity.org/prayer/prayer-protection
The light of God surrounds us;
The love of God enfolds us;
The power of God protects us;
The presence of God watches over us.
Wherever we are, God is!
