Rudolf Steiner’s Daily Prayers

Over vacation, I read a biography of Christian philosopher Rudolf Steiner and picked up the following prayers, which he is said to have recited every day. The first is his version of the Lord’s Prayer, and it seems to have very broad appeal.

You who were, are, and will be in our inmost being,
May your name be glorified and praised in us.
May your kingdom grow in our deeds and inmost lives.
May we perform your will as you, Father, lay it down in our inmost being.


You give us spiritual nourishment, the bread of life, superabundantly in all the changing conditions of our lives.
Let our mercy toward others make up for the sins done to our being.
You do not allow the tempter to work in us beyond the capacity of our strength.
— for no temptation can live in your being, Father, and the tempter is only appearance and delusion, from which you lead us, Father, through the light of knowledge.
May your power and glory work in us through all periods and ages of time.


This next verse Steiner repeated as a mantra. The second line could be deleted or adapted to fit your needs if you are not Christian.

Divine light,
Sun of Christ
Warm our hearts;
Our heads;
That which we
From our hearts
And with our minds
Of set purpose
Seek to achieve.
