Another Journey

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.
