The Prayer of the Chalice



This is a prayer written by Francis Nutall.....not sure why Rumi's picture is above it but I liked the visual effect....Here's the prayer in an easier to read format:
Father, to you I raise my whole being - a vessel emptied of self. Accept, O Lord, this my emptiness, and so fill me with yourself, your light, your love, your life - that these your precious gifts may radiate through me and over- flow the chalice of my heart into the hearts of all with whom I come in contact this day revealing unto them the beauty of your joy and wholeness & the serenity of your peace which nothing can destroy. Amen!
