Let Us Go Forth – A Celtic Sending Out Prayer

Today’s Lenten prayer is a Celtic going forth prayer. It is meant to be for going forth out into the day but I love to use it at the end of a seminar as a going forth from one place to the next. It is another great Celtic prayer to meditate on in this season of Lent.

I originally came across this prayer in a little book entitled Celtic Fire, a delightful collection of stories and prayers that I would heartily recommend to you.

Let us go forth

In the goodness of our merciful father

In the gentleness of our brother Jesus,

In the radiance of his Holy Spirit

In the faith of the apostles,

In the joy praise of the angels,

In the holiness of the saints,

In the courage of the martyrs.

Let us go forth

In the wisdom of our all-seeing Father

In the patience of our all-loving brother,

In the truth of the all-knowing Spirit,

In the learning of the apostles,

In the gracious guidance of the angels,

In the patience of the saints,

In the self control of the martyrs,

Such is the path for all servants of Christ,

The path from death to eternal life.
