Thursday Prayer

May the light of our souls guide us.
May the light of our souls bless the work that we do
with the secret love and warmth of our hearts.
May we see in what we do the beauty of our own souls.
May the sacredness of our work bring healing, light
and renewal to those who work with us
and to those who see and receive our work.
May our work never weary us.
May it release within us wellsprings of
refreshment, inspiration and excitement.
May we be present in what we do.
May we never become lost in bland absences.
May the day never burden.
May dawn find us awake and alert,
Approaching our new day with dreams, possibilities and promises.
May evening find us gracious and fulfilled.
May we go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected.
May our souls calm, console and renew us.

After reading the first couple lines, I thought "this sounds like John O'Donohue." Reading further, I realized why.

He was and continues to be such a gift for us. I had the privilege of hearing him speak once. Such a beautiful spirit. Such a beautiful man.
