Celtic Christianity is known for it’s raw, earthy prayers. “My Soul’s Healer” speaks for those depressed, tired, and struggling with life. Yet, it resonates with an understanding of the God who heals the soul.
My Soul’s Healer
My soul’s Healer,
Keep me at even,
Keep me at morning,
Keep me at noon,
On rough course faring,
Help and safeguard my means this night.
I am tired, astray, and stumbling.
Shield me from snare and sin.
Tuck this prayer away in your Bible for when you are facing difficulties that wound your soul. Sometimes having a prayer just to read calms our mind and emotions in the midst of the storm. I know—I’ve been there.
Praying with you, Susan
“Jesus likes it when we share.” -Adelaide, age 3: Pass this along to everybody and their brother. OK, maybe not everybody’s brother, but you know . . . all of your friends would be nice.
