In honor of the fact that we leave tonight for a weekend in Ireland I thought I would share another prayer from the book Celtic Daily Prayer
I thank You for this, my God, I am a traveler and stranger in the world, like so many of Your people before me.
It is a Yes to risky living…
The sea takes me; where I do not know, but I gladly go. And I can only trust every word You say, and obey.
Through the unknown, help me, Lord. I will trust, and obey!
Lord, I will trust You, help me to journey beyond the familiar and into the unknown.
Give me the faith to leave old ways and break fresh ground with You.
I determine amidst all uncertainty always to trust.
I choose to live beyond regret, and let You recreate my life.
I believe You will make a way for me and provide for me, if only I trust You and obey.
I will trust in the darkness and know that my times are still in Your hand.
I will believe You for my future, chapter by chapter, until all the story is written.
Feed me, and, somehow, make my obedience count for You.
