Friday Postcard

A day trip to Iona. Grateful. 

A Prayer of St. Columba

Be a bright flame before me, O God
a guiding star above me.

Be a smooth path below me,
a kindly shepherd behind me
today, tonight, and for ever.

Alone with none but you, my God
I journey on my way;
what need I fear when you are near,

O Lord of night and day?
More secure am I within your hand
than if a multitude did round me stand.

  1. Thank you for this beautiful prayer. I prayed it yesterday when I was checking email on the run and again today when I have time to sit and reflect. It filled me with an awareness of God’s presence both times. Your photography is breath-taking. What a wonderful trip.
