Praying for rain …

Praying in hope and expectation.

A prayer for rain from the BCP

July 18, 2017. Idyllwild, CA. Since the winter snows there has been little moisture on the mountain. Today and tomorrow we have a slight chance of rain. We pray that it may be so. ~Fr. Dan

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.

Grant me the lamp of love

Luminous with a love for others.

Oil lamp. Lit.

Grant me, O Lord, the lamp of love which never grows dim, that it may shine in me and warm my heart, and give light to others through my love for them, and by its brightness we may have a vision of the Holy City where the true and inextinguishable light shines, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A prayer by Columbanus (550-615) in Michael Counsell, Ed.,
2000 Years of Prayer Kindle Edition.

As we move into Saturday (the week day this was posted) how did you do with giving “light to others through [your] love for them”? How can you learn from the good you have done and expand into a new week? ~Fr. Dan

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
