For the next eight Sundays I will not be preaching and will therefore not be preparing lectionary-themed pastoral prayers as I usually do. Instead, I will post the prayerful wisdom of the ages as the Spirit so moves.
These words are from Julian of Norwich.
God, of your goodness, give me yourself. For you are enough for me. And I may ask nothing that is less, that may be of honour to you. And if I ask anything that is less, I am always in want. For only in you I have all. Amen.
