PRAYER: Lord of My Heart (Celtic)

Lord of My Heart (Celtic)

Lord of my heart, give me vision to inspire me, that, working or resting,
I may always think of you.
Lord of my heart, give me light to guide me, that, at home or abroad,
I may always walk in your way.
Lord of my heart, give me wisdom to direct me, that, thinking or acting,
I may always discern right from wrong.
Lord of my heart, give me courage to strengthen me, that, amongst friends or enemies,
I may always proclaim your justice.
Lord of my heart, give me trust to console me, that, hungry or well-fed,
I may always rely on your mercy.
Lord of my heart, save me from empty praise, that I may always boast of you.
Lord of my heart, save me from worldly wealth, that I may always look
to the riches of Heaven.
Lord of my heart, save me from military prowess, that I may always seek your protection.
Lord of my heart, save me from vain knowledge, that I may always study your word.
Lord of my heart, save me from unhealthy pleasures, that I may always
find joy in your beautiful creation.
Lord of my heart, whatever may befall me, rule over any thoughts and feelings,
my words and actions.

Amen.
