Prayer of Blessing: St. Columba

Here’s a short prayer from St. Columba (c. 521-597).


My dearest Lord.
Be Thou a bright flame before me.
Be Thou a guiding star above me.
Be Thou a smooth path beneath me.
Be Thou a kindly shepherd behind me.
Today and evermore.

~ excerpted from a longer prayer by St. Columba.
