Prayer for today

This week’s prayer is taken from the Aidan series of daily readings in Celtic Daily Prayer: Book 1, published by the Northumbria Community.

Oh Son of Mary
how wonderful
Your friendliness to me!
How deep! How unchanging!
Help me to pass it on.

Help me to find my happiness
in my acceptance 
of what is Your purpose for me:
in friendly eyes; in work well done;
and, most of all,
in the awareness
of Your presence in my spirit.

Come, Lord Jesus, come as King.
Rule in our minds: come as peace.
Rule in our actions: come as power.
Rule in our days: come as joy. 
Thy Kingdom come among us. 

Amen.
