Prayer

Alone…

CSC_0017

#646 For those days, for those situations, for those people, and for those places, for when we feel alone, today I pray:

Heavenly Father,
in your Son Jesus Christ
you have given us a true faith and a sure hope.
Strengthen this faith and hope in us all our days,
that we may live as those who believe in

the communion of saints
the forgiveness of sins
and the resurrection to eternal life;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

(From the 1928 Prayer Book)

#645 How often do you look back and acknowledge the people who have helped you to be where you are today, or to become who you are today? #embercards #requestforprayer #givingthanks

One prayer

#529 Similar to a New Years #resolution perhaps; if you had just #oneprayer what would it be? If you could #askgod just one question, what would you ask? 

Happy New Year

#523 Happy New Year!!! In line with an old tradition of introducing into your home that which you hope will be plentiful, I had to see in the #newyear with my #favouritebreakfast of pancakes, bacon and eggs! With love, prayers and good wishes for all those who read these posts – may you find hope and strength through #challengingtimes as well as #wonderfulblessings to rejoice in. Amen.

The need to express

#498 #day3 of #japantravels…#prayers outside the temple are evidence of people’s #needs. Provision to seek and ask is so important…perhaps having the #opportunity to express that need alleviates it somewhat?

Humility

#443 This week I’ve been working on a #resource for #contemplativeprayer. I’ve also been incredibly humbled by events of the last few days. This #poem came out of those two aspects of my week:

#Humility
Oblivion is easy, simple, peaceful even;
But is it real, everlasting peace?
That which flows from God,
The source of all-being and light.
Oblivion is easy, yet life without thee…
Well that is nothing.

Prayer is comfort, relationship, stillness;
Also on occasion arid, lacking.
That which flows from God,
Is never in want, only we fall short.
Humility, not pride, opens our eyes…
To the God of grace and peace.
