Weekly Prayer - I Start Here

Columban Weekly Prayer

Lord, time is so precious. 
Time to heal and be healed, 
time to sort myself out, to understand, 
to get it all together, to see Your hand.

Where does each day go? 
So fast, like a mountain stream,  
so past, like a distant dream, 
so lost, before we know, so time seems to flow. 
So there’s no time to be lost, 
I start here, this very moment, 
I begin my prayer for healing here and now.

I lay the foundations with renewed heart 
as stone by stone a wall is laid, 
so prayer by prayer my hope is made 
for a fresh start with You, Lord.


— By Columban Fr. Patrick Sayles
