Pause for Prayer: FRIDAY 8/9

 Father's Embrace by Ruth Councell
(used with permission)

Regular readers will be familiar with this prayer which I post every once in a while and which is always available on the sidebar.  I learned this song on retreat last November and it continues to sustain me.

Take, O Take Me As I Am

Take, O take me as I am,
Summon out what I shall be.
Set your seal upon my heart
and live in me...

- John Bell

Please THINK before you write
and PRAY before you think!
