A Celtic Prayer

when mystery hides You from the sight of faith and hope; when pain turns even love to dust; when life is bitter to the taste and our song of joy dies down to silence; then, Father, do for us that which is past our power to do for ourselves. break through our darkness with Your light. show us Yourself in Jesus suffering on a Tree, rising from the grave, reigning from a throne with all power and love for us unchanging. so shall our fear be gone and our feet set upon a radiant path.

this is a prayer from the Northumbria Community’s Celtic Daily Prayer book.  I am using it for the communion service I am leading at school this coming Wednesday.  It is beautiful and I thought I would share it with you all!  Peace.
