AOIFE is from Gweedore in Co. Donegal. The traditional feel of 'Calm the Soul' needed the haunting sound that Aoife brings to so many of the traditional Irish songs that she sings. She has produced a number of albums, has toured and performed in the US, Japan, Europe and has recorded with other artists in various musical genres. It was lovely to meet her during the summer when she travelled to Galway to record the first verse of the song.
Whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words.
Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
Pray then in this way:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
