A Prayer by Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556) link
Steer the ship of my life, good Lord, to your quiet harbour
where I can be safe from the storms of sin and conflict.
Show me the course I should take.
Renew in me the gift of discernment, so that I can always see the right direction in which I should go.
And give me the strength and the courage to choose the right course,
even when the sea is rough and the waves are high,
knowing that through enduring hardship and danger
in your name we shall find comfort and peace.
Prayer of Benedict of Nursia (c. 480–547) link
O gracious and holy Father,
give us wisdom to perceive you,
diligence to seek you,
patience to wait for you,
eyes to behold you,
a heart to meditate upon you,
and a life to proclaim you;
through the power of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Scripture Reading: Habakkuk 2:5-8 (NASB Bible Gateway)
“Furthermore, wine betrays the haughty man,
So that he does not stay at home.
He enlarges his appetite like Sheol,
And he is like death, never satisfied.
He also gathers to himself all nations
And collects to himself all peoples.
“Will not all of these take up a taunt-song against him,
Even mockery and insinuations against him
And say, ‘Woe to him who increases what is not his—
For how long—
And makes himself [a]rich with loans?’
“Will not [b]your creditors rise up suddenly,
And those who [c]collect from you awaken?
Indeed, you will become plunder for them.
“Because you have looted many nations,
All the remainder of the peoples will loot you—
Because of human bloodshed and violence [d]done to the land,
To the town and all its inhabitants.
The Lord’s Prayer (traditional)
Taken from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer, 1662 link
Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.
Traditional Gaelic Blessing (link)
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
