Sabbath Prayer

For the next eight Sundays I will not be preaching and will therefore not be preparing lectionary-themed pastoral prayers as I usually do. Instead, I will post the prayerful wisdom of the ages as the Spirit so moves.

These words are from Julian of Norwich.

God, of your goodness, give me yourself. For you are enough for me. And I may ask nothing that is less, that may be of honour to you. And if I ask anything that is less, I am always in want. For only in you I have all. Amen.


Don't forget the Wednesday Festival: it's easy! Anyone can play!

All you have to do is click on the hyperlinked words: RevGal Wednesday Festival to create a mail message to the Festival team.

Nominations should be from your own blog or another RGBP ring member's. Please include a brief description of the post (a sentence is fine!) and the URL for the post, too!


  1. Thanks for the Julian of Norwich prayer. Her total longing and her total giving of herself has always been an image of that self-surrender to God that I have admired but never been able to do. Guess that's the reason she is a saint.

    Her story of her visions was the frist book written in English by a woman. It should help us understand The Vision of Light.

    Have a good time off.

  2. I have always loved the writings of Julian of Norwich. When I first "discovered" her, I was so thrilled to find someone who could validate the longings of my own heart. Of course I'll never be in her league . . . Thanks for sharing and have a blessed time off.

  3. Thank you Sue - prayers for you on your Sabbatical
