St Brendan was an Irish monk who was born 460 AD. It is believed by some historians that the monk was eager to spread the Gospel to unknown lands. With the winds of the Holy Spirit in his sails, he travelled by boat. It was believed that he reached north Scotland and even went as far as Iceland, and rumour has it, he made his way to America.

We don’t know all the facts – but St Brendan was keen to take a risk and follow his God whatever situation he faced. Through his life, we believe that he would have experienced hardships but was faithful to his journey.  This is no different to the life of Paul, as we navigate our way through St Brendan’s prayer, we can see similarities with Paul. Over the next few weeks, we want this prayer to inspire us, as move in to the place where we to seek what God is calling us to do. Maybe you are exploring the next step, maybe you have taken the next step in your journey, maybe you are facing hardships. Lets allow God to speak to us through the life of Paul and use this prayer to inspire us to take the next step.  

Rev Matthew Huckle 

“Help me to journey beyond the familiar
and into the unknown.
Give me the faith to leave old ways
and break fresh ground with You.
Christ of the mysteries, I trust You
to be stronger than each storm within me.
I will trust in the darkness and know
that my times, even now, are in Your hand.
Tune my spirit to the music of heaven,

and somehow, make my obedience count for You.”
