Changed for the Healing of the World | John Philip Newell | Prayer | Celtic Spirituality | Heartbeat


That truth has been inscribed into our hearts

and into the heart of every human being,

there to be read and reverenced,

thanks be to you, O God.

That there are ways of seeing

and sensitivities of knowing

hidden deep in the palace of the soul,

waiting to be discovered,

ready to be set free,

thanks be to you.

Open our senses to wisdom’s inner promptings

that we may give voice to what we hear in our soul

and be changed for the healing of the world,

that we may listen for truth in every living soul

and be changed for the well-being of the world.
