Pilgrimage to Iona: My pearls of life prayer

I wrote about the Pearls of Life prayer beads in an earlier post and how I’ve been praying with them as a place to center in prayer.  During my pilgrimage to Iona, the landscape of my travels came to represent those beads of prayer.  I share them with you.

The God Pearl

   You are boundless.  You are near.  You are light, and I am yours.

The Silence Pearl

    In God’s silence may I be–quiet, still, craving nothing.

   I am a drop in God’s sea that reflects the sky.

The Baptism Pearl

  I am your child, my God, help me grow, help me mature.

The Desert Pearl

 Cleanse me so I will be clean.  Heal me so I will be whole.
