“Give me the Love that leads the way
The Faith that nothing can dismay
The Hope no disappointments tire
The Passion that’ll burn like fire
Let me not sink to be a clod
Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God”

– Amy Carmichael

Morning Offering…

Morning Offering…

I place on the altar of dawn:
The quiet loyalty of breath,
The tent of thought where I shelter,
Waves of desire I am shore to
And all beauty drawn to the eye.

May my mind come alive today
To the invisible geography
That invites me to new frontiers,
To break the dead shell of yesterdays,
To risk being disturbed and changed.

May I have the courage today
To live the life that I would love,
To postpone my dream no longer
But do at last what I came here for
And waste my heart on fear no more”

.~John O’Donohue

A Grandmother’s Prayer … Just give me a little hand to hold,

21761654_1539849172741693_2853358221234318316_n

“Oh Lord, I do not ask for much,
eternal beauty, or youth, or such.
Just give me a little hand to hold,
and I’ll forget that I’m growing old.
I do not ask for cloudless skies,
a life that’s free from tears and sighs.
Just give me a little face to kiss,
and anxious moments will turn to bliss.
For what is there, really, that means so much
as little hands that reach and touch,
as little eyes that search and see
only the best in fragile me?
So let me grow more loving and wise
by looking at life through their wide eyes.
For through these little ones, you have given
this grateful grandmother a glimpse of Heaven.”

~ Barbara Burrows

“And when you pray, obey the same Commandment!

Do not pray in order to hear your voice,
but pray because your inner being demands it.

Dare to pray only when your soul stirs,
be it in joy or in sorrow…!”

He continued:
“Do not go into the street either, to pray to God.
Avoid the public; for you would lack concentration.

Find the quietest little chamber;
there you can approach your God…”

 

– Jesus the Christ. – from the work: JESCHUA Ben JAHWE..

Wisdom from past eras . . . Their songs were full of their love for the Light.”

19961259_1902539386680826_623677614172095236_n

“Prayers such as are known to Christianity
were completely unknown to the Incas, as well as to all ancient peoples.
They would never have dared request anything from the Creator;
the thought would not have occurred to them.
Their songs were full of their love for the Light.”

– Roselis von Sass(The Truth About the Incas)

Anything you believe you need . . .

“Anything you believe you need is available to you through prayer.
We are not talking here about a magic formula of proper and distinct words.
Oh no! We are talking about opening your heart and your mouth,
saying what’s on your mind, knowing that once you do,
the answer will be revealed.”

I like to exchange whispered conversations with God
before I venture out into world..
