A Prayer for Thursday
According to Esther de Waal in The Celtic Way of Prayer, "Thursday was St Columba's day which was looked upon as a lucky day for many enterprises; for warping thread, for the marking of lambs, and many other undertakings." Here is a litany for Thursday:
Thursday of Columba benign, Day to send sheep of prosperity, Day to send cow on calf, Day to put the web in the warp. Day to put coracle on the brine, Day to place the staff to the flag, Day to bear, day to die, day to hunt the heights. Day to put horses in harness, Day to send herds to pasture, Day to make prayer efficacious, Day of my beloved, the Thursday, Day of my beloved, the Thursday.
(The Celtic Way of Prayer, 65)
