Anyone who is having troubles should pray.
Anyone who is happy should sing praise.
Do you want to know how to deepen your prayer life? Pray.
Don't prepare to pray. Just Pray. Don't read about prayer
or engage in discussion about prayer. Just pray.
Posture, tone, and place are personal matters. Select
the form that works for you. But don't think about it too
much. Don't be so concerned about wrapping the gift
that you never give it. Better to pray awkwardly that not
And if you feel you should only pray when inspired, that's okay.
Just see to it that you are inspired every day.
When God Whispers Your Name
May today there be peace with in you.
May you trust God that you are
exactly where you are meant to be .
Anything, God, but hate:
I have known it in my day,
And the best it does is scar your soul
And eat your heart away.
Man must know more than hate,
As the years go rolling on;
For the stars survive and the spring survives,
Only man denies the dawn,
God, if I have but one prayer
Before the cloud-wrapped end,
I'm sick of hate and the waste it makes.
Let me be my brother's friend.
Give me a good digestion, Lord,
And also something to digest;
Give me a healthy body, Lord,
With sense to keep it at its best;
Give me a healthy mind, good Lord,
To keep the good and pure in sight,
Which seeing sin is not appalled
But finds a way to set it right;
Give me a mind that is not bored,
That does not whimper, whine or sigh;
Don't let me worry overmuch
About the fussy thing called I.
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some happiness from life
And pass it on to other folk.
Prayer of Saint Francis of Assis
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon,
Where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may
not so much seek to be consoled,
as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
God grant me the serenity,
to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
The Prayer of Jabez
Prayer for proseperity
Oh, that you would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that your hand would be with me,
and that you would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain!
Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name,
thy knigdom come,
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass aganist us,
And lead us not into tempation,
But deliver us form evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power
And the glory forever and ever.
