A prayer at the start of things…

Loving God,

save me from ever being a blind guide,

from straining an gnat and swallowing a camel,

from getting caught up in the unimportant,

from missing mercy and grace….

help me not to become too wrapped up in myself,

but aware enough to know when I am stumbling,,

help me to seek justice,

to love mercy,

to walk humbly…


My days are often so full of distractions,

help me to discern what is important,

to hear the quieter voices,

among those demanding my attention,

to hear the Spirits whisper…

and being be centered in you,

to work from that focused centre of love,

knowing that love, being that love, living that love


Loving God,

save me from ever being a blind guide,

help me to be aware of the plank in my eye,

guide me to see things from different perspectives…

may what I am, and what I do bring peace,

even when the peace maker is called

to wield a sword….

help me to learn, help me to listen, help me to love…

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
