A Celtic Prayer for the Last Friday in Lent

By Richard Bryant

As I examine the unwoven threads of this day,

I look at each piece.

Each color a moment, each length a word.

Some of the frayed fragments are tears, other loose strands are laughter.

In the silence of this moment I ask, “How will I put this day back together?”

“How will tomorrow be restored?”

Then I am reminded, this is not my task.

Only you weave the strands of frayed lives back together.

You create a new quilt of life each day.

You make new fabric from old rags.

You do what I cannot and will never be able to accomplish.

You restore and recreate.

Heal me and make me part of your future.

Amen
