Columban Weekly Prayer

Columban Daily Prayer

When I’m not feeling well,  
and tired, I can get so down,  
down with others,  
down with myself,  
down with everything,  
my spirit withers within me. 

I become like a flower in a dry land,  
desperate for rain,  
just wishing to feel at rights,  
so I can enjoy my life again. 

Lord, make haste to help me, 
send the showers of Your love upon me, 
so that like flowers refreshed in rain,  
I can lift up my drooping head,  
and rejoice in You instead. 

Amen. 

— By Columban Fr. Patrick Sayles
