A prayer for these uncertain times.

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. (Deuteronomy 33:27)

I love this beautiful Celtic encircling prayer from Iona. It reminds me of the prayer for protection and safety in Ephesians 6 - The Armour of God. It's a really moving one to pray during these uncertain times.

My Christ, 
My shield,
My encircler,
each day,
each night,
each light,
each dark,
be near me,
uphold me,
my treasure,
my triumph.
