Night Prayer

St Melangell 
Psalm 85 
Turn your ear to me, Lord, and hear me,
  for I am poor and destitute.
Keep my life safe, for I am faithful;
  O God, save your servant, who trusts in you.

This is lovely, because I don't think I have ever come across a post using St Melangell's image.

I do remember she was supposed to have come over to Wales from Ireland eons ago and she is the patron saint of hares because she protected one under her cloak when a Prince was hunting it and he was so moved by her courage that he gave her a whole valley to herself as a sanctuary.
It's a nice synchrony too as once of my posts today was about walking and meeting a rabbit- not a hare but near enough maybe :-))
Blessings :-))

Just looked at your post and saw it Phil! I have been to her church a couple of times - will be a sacred space blog when I get round to it. When I read the psalm the picture just came to mind. blessings back +x
