the summer prayer

"Great Light, Mover of all that is moving and at rest, be my Journey and my far Destination, be my Want and my Fulfilling, be my Sowing and my Reaping, be my Song and my stark Silence. Be my Sword and  my strong Shield, be my Lantern and my dark Night, be my everlasting Strength and my piteous Weakness. Be my Greeting and my parting Prayer, be my bright Vision and my Blindness, be my Joy and my sharp Grief, be my sad Death and my sure Resurrection!

"So be it!"

Stephen Lawhead, 1989: Arthur; a Lion paperback - Oxford. pg 477
