An Inspirational Prayer

Do not look forward to what may happen
tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares
for you today will take care of you tomorrow and
every day. Either He will shield you from suffering,
or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace, then. Put aside all anxious thoughts and
imaginations, and say continually: “The Lord is my
strength and my shield. My heart has trusted in Him
and I am helped. He is not only with me but in me,
and I in Him.”

St. Francis de Sales

An Inspirational Blessing

 

“I have called upon Thee,
For Thou wilt hear me, o Lord, and hear my speech.
Show Thy marvelous loving kindness, O Thou that savest by
Thy right hand those who put their trust in Thee from those
That rise up against them.
Keep me as the apple of thine eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Thy wings.”[Psalm 7: 6,7,8]

An Inspirational Prayer for Children

My Children

My children, know you not that the Earth
And all that dwells therein
Is but a reflection of the
Kingdom of the Heavenly Father?

And as you are suckled and comforted
By your mother when a child,
But you go to join your father in the fields
When you grow up,
So do the Angels of the Earthly Mother
Guide your steps
Toward him who is your Father,
And all his holy Angels,
That you may know your true home
And become true Sons of God.

While we are children,
We will see the rays of the sun,
But not the Power which created it;
While we are children,
We will hear the sounds of the flowing brook,
But not the Love which created it;
While we are children,
We will see the stars,
But not the hand which scatters them
Through the sky,
As the farmer scatters the seed.

Only through the Communions
With the Angels of the Heavenly Father,
Will we learn to see the unseen,
To hear that which cannot be heard,
And to speak the unspoken word.

Read the Prayer for Hope

All Things Exist By Thee

Thou hast made known unto me
Thy deep, mysterious things.
All things exist by Thee
and there is none beside Thee.
By Thy Law
Thou hast directed my heart
that I set my steps straight forward
upon right paths
and walk where Thy presence is.

“For the Lord will not cast off forever: but though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies. For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men”

[Lamentation 3:31-33]

Prayers From the Dead Sea Scrolls

I Have Reached The Inner Vision

I have reached the inner vision
and through Thy spirit in me
I have heard Thy wondrous secret.
Through Thy mystic insight
Thou hast caused a spring of knowledge
to well up within me,
a fountain of power,
pouring forth living waters,
a flood of love
and of all-embracing wisdom
like the splendor of eternal Light.

In Thy Mercy

Father, God, in Thy mercy, in Thy love,
Be Thou with us now.
For we know and we speak of Thy love.
And help us then to put away, for the hour,
The cares of this life; that we may know in truth
That the spirit and the lamb say, “Come.”
Let them that hear also say, “Come.”
Let all that will, come and drink of the water of life.

God Speaks to Men

Our Father, Our God

Our Father, our God, in my own consciousness
Let me find happiness in the love of Thee,
For the love I bear toward my fellowman.
Let my life, my words, my deeds, bring the joy
And happiness of the Lord in Jesus to each I meet,
Day by day.
