little boats

Dear God, be good to me. The sea is so wide and my boat is so small.

September 17th from Celtic Daily Prayer

I suppose we all have days where this little prayer might just as well be our own. Do you ever feel like your little boat is getting tossed about?

Celtic Daily Prayer has been a great resource for growing my prayer life. It has been encouraging making the words of Christians, followers of Jesus, who have been dead for hundreds of years my own. It is good to pray in our own words and, like the Psalms read in the early church, it is good to make other’s words ours through prayer.
