Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 1/11

The old Celtic prayer above used to be prayed in the morning when stirring the embers on the hearth from the previous night's fire. Today it stirs the inspiration for my writing this Pause for Prayer.

Lord, when my trust is only dust 
and my confidence in ashes:
stir the embers of my faith...

When I've lost the breath 
to fan the dying cinders back to flame:
stir the embers of my hope...

When it seems the fire's out 
and the coals have all grown cold:
stir the embers of my love...

Stir the embers of my heart, Lord,
into flames of love for you,
for my family, my neighbor and my foe...
