A place to find prayer online, and an Irish blessing to you

The other evening at our Vestry meeting, Pastor Ann Willms brought this website to our attention: it is an online daily prayer meditation written by Jesuit Irish brothers (how appropriate for St. Patrick's Day!), called You can reach it by clicking HERE.

The website has prayers, a short scripture reading, and as you progress it even has an icon called "Need Inspiration?" with a brief reflection on the day's scriptural passage. Please enjoy. Here is part of today's blessing from sacredspace:

I remind myself that I am in your presence O Lord.
I will take refuge in your loving heart.
You are my strength in times of weakness.
You are my comforter in times of sorrow.
God is not foreign to my freedom.
Instead the Spirit breathes life into my most intimate desires,
gently nudging me towards all that is good.
I ask for the grace to let myself be enfolded by the Spirit.
