The turning of the year has brought an awful lot of changes and challenges, so this prayer from the Carmina Gadaelica seemed most apt:
DHE STIUIR MI
God Guide Me
From the Carmina Gadelica
GOD guide me with Thy wisdom,
God chastise me with Thy justice,
God help me with Thy mercy,
God protect me with Thy strength.
God fill me with Thy fullness,
God shield me with Thy shade,
God fill me with Thy grace,
For the sake of Thine Anointed Son.
Jesu Christ of the seed of David,
Visiting One of the Temple,
Sacrificial Lamb of the Garden,
Who died for me.
