Wheaton Franciscan Prayer

Take a Moment Today for Stillness and to Find Internal Peace 

Today, I surround myself
with a bubble of peaceful energy. 
I breathe in the peace,
I breathe in the energy.
I am soothed during the day's
most stressful moments. 
I am safe and secure
and loved within this bubble of 
God's light and love and protection.
