Arising


I rise up clothed in the strength of Christ.
I shall not be imprisoned,
I shall not be harmed;
I shall not be downtrodden.
I shall not be left alone;
I shall not be tainted,
I shall not be overwhelmed.
I go clothed in Christ's white garments;
I go free to weave Christ's patterns;
I go loved to serve Christ's weak ones;
I go armed to rout Christ's foes.
Prayer from the Community of Aiden & Hilda

Ah, this is so timely today. I must go this afternoon to fight the dragons of University administration and I have the courage of my convictions...but not a lot of faith in the people I will be talking with. Sigh.

Dang, it's good this is a private blog.

Please pray for clarity and patience for me. I'm at the beginning of a time of change, and it's going to take a while.

What a wonderful prayer. A garment that protects and yet is open for the weaving and reweaving of our spirit by the Spirit.

Thanks for this!
