Worrisome Thoughts Begone

Dear God,

This day has been a blessing.  I realized that it is quite possible to reduce worrisome thoughts that serve no purpose.  Why dwell on what bothers me?  If I need to do something about it, You will alert me without my having to keep a worry on my mind and in my heart.

Thank You for walking with me through another day.

Amen.

Evening Prayer

Dear God,

It is almost the close of another day, and I am especially appreciative that this was a very smooth day in all respects.  Be with me for a sound sleep, and at the dawn of tomorrow, may my mind and heart be positive as I greet a new day.

Your guidance at all times of the day is a blessing beyond compare.  Thank You for welling up from within, deep within, and granting me Your best advice throughout my days.

Amen.

Rest

Dear God,

I am sleepy this morning and rather unmotivated.  Let me extract the kernel of truth in what is happening in this situation.  I would forge ahead today, and You may be telling me to rest.  My body may need rest.

Keep me attuned to the best that You would offer to me.  Forging ahead when Your message is to rest would be a mistake.  I ask for guidance in my sleepy-time experience on this day.

Thank You for alerting me in to what is needed in my life.

Amen.

Rainy Day

Dear God,

Thank You for this rainy day.  We have been needing rain, and this shower is slow and steady, the best kind for nourishing plants and people, too.  You have varied weather in Your world, and this variation gives all of us much pleasure.  Thank You.

Amen.

Tipping Point

Dear God,

There is so much in the world that needs praying for:  Where to begin? 

I think that if we get our own lives working well, everyone will finally reach the “tipping point” for handling interaction with the world in a good way, too. 

And that is all it will take.  Somehow when I type this out, it doesn’t seem so difficult.  All of us individually and collectively can make an improvement in the world’s conditions.

Be with us to make things work better, for ourselves and the world, too.

Thank You.

Amen.

Healthy Diet

Dear God,

Please guide my thinking about what to eat to aid the mind and body that You gave to me.  I want to make the heart-based choice in food.

I ask for Your guidance, and I sense that always, when I ask, You are right there with me, giving me in the next step.

Thank You for tips to good eating, something that I haven’t often taken to You in prayer.

Amen.

Find a Quiet Corner

Dear God,

If I find myself in a low mood—ever—the first thing I need to do is to find a quiet corner and settle down to calm and quiet.  Your love then infuses me, and soon all is well.  I can sense You when I take a breather from the world.

The world is too much with many of us.  Let’s let God’s love soothe and comfort as we pray for improvements in our world.

I appreciate the sure sense of love that I feel when I quieten down.  And I appreciate You.

Amen.

True Guidance

Dear God,

I am very happy today.  I am much calmer than I sometimes am, and my joy molecules seem to be working overtime.

I feel that You are guiding me through intuition, and it is just up to me to follow what You suggest.  To be safe, I must consider what occurs and be sure that I stay on track, don’t do anything to hurt anybody.

Thank You for this system of internal guidance, a blessing if there ever were one.  It is the inner Christ-Self, the Holy Spirit, the Higher Power that even agnostics recognize.  It the evidence of things not seen–faith actualized.  I appreciate Your movement in my life.

Amen.
