Celtic Prayer

 

Lord of my heart, give me vision to inspire me, that, working or resting, I may always think of you.

Lord of my heart, give me light to guide me, that, at home or abroad, I may always walk with you.

Lord of my heart, give me wisdom to direct me, that, thinking or acting, I may always discern right from wrong.

Lord of my heart, give me courage to strengthen me, that, amongst friends or enemies, I may always proclaim your justice.

Lord of my heart, give me trust to console me, that, hungry or well-fed, I may always rely on your mercy.

Lord of my heart, save me from empty praise, that I may always boast of you.

Lord of my heart, save me from worldly wealth, that I may always look to the riches of heaven.

Lord of my heart, save me from military prowess, that I may always seek your protection.

Lord of my heart, save me from vain knowledge, that I may always study your word.

Lord of my heart, Save me from unnatural pleasures, that I may always find joy in your wonderful creation.

Lord of my heart, whatever may befall me, rule over my thoughts and feelings, my words and action.

 If you’ve read through this today may I suggest you go back now and pray it and if you can, pray it out loud. Blessings!

  1. Beautiful!
    I love all things celtic/gaelic/Irish/Welsh but this is especially meaningful.
    I am collecting it for myself and I think I shall take it a stanza at a time, a day at a time so that I can flesh out one day at a time on my blog along with scripture supports.
    Do you mind if I steal it? It has captured my imagination and I’ve been so very dry for so very long on my poor blog.
    I will wait until I hear from you. . .

    Kim, I’ve already replied to you with a hearty wish for you to take it and bless us further with what the Spirit will put on your heart!
