Lord, You Are My Hope

Help me, Lord, to see You are about me.
You are my hope.
In my laying down and rising, in my traveling and arriving.
You are my hope.
In my sorrow and enjoyment, in my work and unemployment
Help me, Lord, to see You are about me.
You are my hope.
In my health and in my sickness, in my strength and in my weakness,
Help me, Lord, to see You are about me.
You are my hope.
In my peacefulness and strife, in my going from this life
Help me, Lord, to see You are about me.
You are my hope.
In my achievement and its waning, in my losing or my gaining
Help me, Lord, to see You are about me.
You are my hope.

{Note: the final word may be changed from hope to peace, or life, or this may be prayed three times with the last word read differently each time.}
Celtic Prayer, “Help Me Lord” [PL6-7]


This prayer found in the book, “Prayers for Today”,  by Kurt Bjorklund
