The Prayer Of The Chalice by Frances Nuthall (1892-1983)

Beloved, to Thee I raise my whole being,
a vessel emptied of self. Accept, O Lord,
this my emptiness, and so fill me with
Thy Self — Thy Light, Thy Love, Thy
Life — that these Thy precious Gifts
may radiate through me and over-
flow the chalice of my heart into
the hearts of all with whom I
come in contact this day,
revealing unto them
the beauty of
Thy joy
and
Wholeness
and
the
serenity
of Thy Peace
which nothing can destroy.
Prayer of The Chalice – Francis Nuttall
