Prayer of St. Columba

by on March 18, 2019

St. Columba lived from 521–597. He was responsible for bringing Christianity to Scotland from Ireland. This prayer is found in the Book of Common Worship (2018), p. 1106. I created the hand motions to help children of all ages memorize the prayer.

With you, O God, to guide me, (facing forward, hand gesturing to God in front of us)

I journey on my way. (both hands extend forward to the path ahead)

I know you are beside me (arms to the side, one at a time)

all through the night and day. (hand move together in arc, making circle with fingers)

Within your hand you hold me; (hands rotate to make cup)

what do I have to fear? (hands uplifted to sides)

Your loving arms enfold me, (arms cross and embrace self)

your grace is always near. Amen. (hands cover heart)
