Power of God, be our protection; Wisdom of God, be our guide;
Word of God, be our inspiration; Shield of God, be our defence;

Saint Patrick's Breastplate, Book of Armagh, 9th century
when you call, may we respond;
when we falter, be our guide.
When you speak, may we hear;
when we question, be our wisdom.
When you ask, may we answer;
when we hesitate, be our resolve.
When you show, may we see;

when we fail, be our rock.
When you give, may we receive;
and may we love, as you first loved us. Amen.
Paul Martin, Bolton and Rochdale District Chair
