Holy Trinity Church, Glendalough, founded by St Kevin (d. 618). A prayer I crafted sitting by this wonderful 12th Century Christian Celtic Church in Ireland. Take time to pause and pray this prayer in the open air today.


O my God!
In the freshness of the morning breeze, visit me.
In the warmth of the sun’s rays, bathe me.
In the sharpness of the chilling air, challenge me.
In the beauty of birdsong Litany, serenade me.
In the chattering waters of the brook, refresh me.
In the great silence of your vast landscape, envision me.
As my eye rises from the glittering streams below to the snowcapped Wicklow tops above,
Lord, re-found me in your service and forever keep me close within your safe presence.
