“At the ending of day,
in the darkness of night
we seek an inner assurance of your presence.

Our body is still
and our soul is silent
as we listen for the renewing springs of your Spirit
deep in the ground of our being
and in earth’s quietness all around us.

Guide us to the wellsprings of health
in the landscape of our soul
and to the hidden reservoirs of strength
in the people and places of our life
that we may be made well this night,
that we may be made well.”

~ John Philip Newell,
in Sounds of the Eternal

“You never can tell what your thoughts will do
In bringing you hate or love
For thoughts are things and their airy wings
Are swift as a carrier dove
They follow the law of the universe–
Each thing must create its kind,
And they speed o’er the track to bring you back
Whatever went out from your mind.”

~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

“Noise and crowds have a way
of siphoning our energy
and distracting our attention,
making prayer an added chore
rather than a comforting relief.”

~ Charles R. Swindoll

“When prayer comes from the soul,
when it is prayer of pure intent and inspiration,
a prayer that desires to reach out and create an envelope
of love for self and All Our Relations, then the very desire
with which it is being spoken gives it wings that will carry it
to the heights and realms of Spirit.”

~ Maria Yraceburu

“May we be secretly joyous in spite of all adverse circumstances,
knowing that happiness is our birthright, our divine “buried treasure.”
Guide us to find in our soul the riches beyond the dreams of kings.”

— Paramahansa Yogananda
