Prayer for Saturday (Day of Āshūrā)

Today is the Muslim holiday of the Day of Āshūrā and the Sikh commemoration the martyrdom of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji, the ninth of the Ten Sikh Gurus.

Happiness is part of who we are.
Joy is the feeling.
~ Tony DeLiso, Legacy: The Power Within

A Celtic Prayer on Joy

As the hand is made for holding and the eye for seeing,
You have fashioned me for joy.
Share with me the vision that finds that joy everywhere.
In the wild violet’s beauty;
In the lark’s melody;
In the face of a steadfast man;
In a child’s smile;
In a mother’s love;
In the purity of Jesus.

(A Maclean, Hebridean Altars, Moray Press, Edinburgh,
1937 Modified)
