I have been recently collecting various books from different Christian faith traditions. I believe that there is a beauty in looking at how various Christians around the world pray to God, there is something beautiful in the diversity and tapestry of prayers that ascend to the throne room of our Lord.
One of those books is on Celtic Prayer and yesterday’s prayer was beautiful and has stuck with me. It is an amazing reminder that Christ is present in our lives and surrounds us. I pray that it benefits, affects and comforts you as much as it has me.
Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort me and restore me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
