The Prayer of St Brendan

BrendanPuzzle
Today’s prayer is St Brendan the Voyager’s prayer. Reputedly he set sail in a small coracle of wood and oxhide from Ireland and ended up in Newfoundland. An amazing achievement back in the 5th century.
Help me to journey beyond the familiar
and into the unknown.
Give me the faith to leave old ways
and break fresh ground with You.
 
Christ of the mysteries, I trust You
to be stronger than each storm within me.
I will trust in the darkness and know
that my times, even now, are in Your hand.
Tune my spirit to the music of heaven,
and somehow, make my obedience count for You.
