Baldred, a Northumbrian hermit, lived in Tyningham before moving to live the solitary life on the Bass Rock, off the coast of Edinburgh. It is said that this Rock was a dangerous reef until it was shifted to its present location by the power of Baldred’s prayers!
Almighty God, help me to remember that with You all things are possible. You may not desire me to ask You to move a literal rock, but You do want me to pray that You will move the barriers to the advance of Your purpose in my own life and in the life of the world. Teach me to be faithful in prayer; through my Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.
