All Is Well

Dear God,

I have been reading an uplifting anecdote.  A woman attended church services, prayed deeply, and found in the upcoming week that suddenly, unexpectedly, all was well with her.

Your power is with me for the asking.  I know that You don’t bestow your power unwisely, and so I hope that You have found me ready, in Your eyes, for this better feeling.

Thank You for granting me a blessing.

Amen.

Drowsiness

Dear God,

It is an overcast day, and I still feel sleepy though I had a good night’s rest.  Please take me where I am and soothe me in Your arms.  I can use these moments of sleepiness to get closer to You, undeterred by an excess of energy.

You accept me just as I am, and if I am sluggish today, You will heal me in Your good time.  Thank You for giving me this assurance.

Amen.

Peace

Dear God,

Peace reigns in my heart now, and with this peace I know the day will go smoothly.  If only peace could reign just all the time!  That is my prayer this morning.  Come into my heart, make it pure, and cleave me to Your breast!

Thank You for giving me Your assurance that I am “justified” in Your sight.  You see me as an innocent child who nevertheless makes mistakes.  Your benediction heals.

Amen.

Trust

Dear God,

I need to trust in You and my world a little more than I do.  You do not ask a lot of faith for this, but You do ask some.  A “little willingness.”  

I do have a little willingness, and I pray that this degree of faith is all that You do ask.  Let me revel in trusting You, and I am convinced life will flow along smoothly–for You are always with me.

In trust I know this.

Thank You for taking me by the hand and leading me into the light.

Amen.

Healthy Attitudes

Dear God,

If we don’t keep a healthy, life-affirming attitude, then we force ourselves into the doldrums.  I would not let such a situation embrace me.  I would lift my sights to Your heaven, a heaven that I can enjoy on earth when I am walking Your pathway.

Be with me as I walk through this day.  I appreciate that You are frequently giving me hints of how to proceed in my day.

Amen.

Staying Positive

Dear God,

I got a rousing start to my day, a rousing start with great energy.  But help me to remember to pace myself, lest this energy turn to lassitude.

You want us to focus on the positive, and I am seeking to do that.  I think that staying positive in our thinking and in our heart is a secret of the universe, of Your cosmos.  Guide me in this endeavor.

I appreciate that when I turn to You, You are always there.

With much love.

Amen.

A New Beginning

Dear God,

Having been without my computer for about a month, I have had to learn new ways of interacting with people and writing. Perhaps we are too dependent on technology, but who would be without our toys?

May I return to the computer with a new outlook, using it but not being too bound to it.

Thank You for this new day. We are blessed by Your goodness, for You never go offline.

Amen.
