This Pilgrim’s Prayer


I have been Praying the Office on the Northumbria Community website as often as I am able in collaboration with a number of other missional folk across the globe. This morning making my way through the office God’s Spirit used the words of this prayer below in a most powerful way. A wonderful reminder of His amazing presence each moment of everyday on this pilgrimage we know as life. May these words sink deep into your soul and bless you immeasrably!

Christ, as a light
illumine and guide me.
Christ, as a shield
overshadow me.
Christ under me;
Christ over me;
Christ beside me
on my left and my right.
This day be within and without me,
lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.
Be in the heart of each to whom I speak;
in the mouth of each who speaks unto me.
This day be within and without me,
lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.
Christ as a light;
Christ as a shield;
Christ beside me
on my left and my right.

Blessing

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you,
wherever He may send you.
May He guide you through the wilderness,
protect you through the storm.
May He bring you home rejoicing
at the wonders He has shown you.
May He bring you home rejoicing
once again into our doors.

+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
