The Druid’s Prayer

Grant, God, thy refuge;
and in refuge, strength;
and in strength, understanding;
and in understanding, knowledge;
and from knowledge, knowledge of what is right;
and from knowledge of what is right, the love of it;
and from loving, the love of God.
God and all goodness.

    Thank you all for the comments :) Indeed, it is a lovely and succinct prayer, following the course of refuge, which is faith, and through faith, strength, understanding, knowledge, justice and love. May Allah bless us all with such attributes of the One. Ameen.
