Sunday Morning Prayer

From “Celtic Benedictions” by J. Philip Newell:
May the light of God 
illumine the heart of my soul.
May the flame of Christ 
kindle me to love.
May the fire of the Spirit 
free me to live
this day, tonight, and forever.

I encourage you to pray this prayer slowly and imagine each of these things happening as you pray them. As the light of God illuminates your heart, what do you see? As the flame of Christ creates a fire of love in you, where are supposed to spread the flame of Christ today? And what is the fire of the Spirit freeing you from?
