Prepare Me For My Pathway

God, free me from my wickedness,
God, free me from my entrapment,
God, free me from every gully,
From every tortuous road,
From every slough.

God, open to me every pass,
Christ, open to me every narrow way,
Each soul of holy man and woman in heaven
Be preparing me for my pathway.

(ancient Celtic prayer, slightly revised)
