New Beginning

Dear God,

A new beginning—as every day is!  May I approach this day with renewed vitality and a fresh spirit.  I began this day with a favorite book of devotionals, and this reading blessed me.  Thank You so much.

Guide me through the day.  Help me to feel blessed by You in every little thing that comes up today.

Thank You for joining with me for a good experience on this beautiful autumn day!

Amen.

Create a New World

Dear God,

I am particularly eager today to create the world that I want to live in.  Attitude change makes all the difference.  We can’t create a good world if our thoughts contain lots of negativity.

Be with me as I seek to respond to Your prompting.  You will teach me what and how to create, though I know You want me to make personal decisions as well in regard to a new world.  Be with me to change what I can change (and that needs changing), and to live with the rest in a new and better attitude.

I appreciate Your presence as I seek to transform the part of the world that I touch.

Amen.

Autumn

Dear God,

With autumn here, the weather is cooling, and the sky is bluer from low humidity.  My favorite kind of day.  Thank You for preparing a world that has changing seasons.  We benefit so greatly.

Your creation is wondrous.  Please never let me take your creation for granted.

Amen.

Comfort

Dear God,

Your comfort is tangible.  I welcome Your solace with every little thing.  So often I thank You for comforting me in the midst of my life.  Life is very much better when we let You into ours.

Thank You for letting me know that Your presence is always nearby.  I appreciate that I don’t have to go it alone.  I appreciate that You wrap me up in Your arms and let me know that all is well.

Amen.

God with Me

Dear God,

I feel quite mellow this morning, mellow and good.  You are with me, sustaining me.  You know how I really like to feel when I talk to You, and You are facilitating that feeling now.  It is a warm and cocooned feeling, a certainty that You will always be with me, guiding me.

Do stay with me always and forever.  Do let me know that You are near, indeed, that I am a part of You, and that we are in this together.  With You in my corner, I can accomplish whatever tasks You give me.

Help me to know this in my bones.  Thank You.

Amen.

Intuition vs. Reason

Dear God,

I want to live in a rational way, but I also want intuition to inform my ways.  Sometimes intuition seems irrational.  What to do then?

You say just to wait it out.  Just live with the contradictions.  The paradox.  There is more on Heaven and Earth than we have dreamed of.

Be with me as I sort out these inconsistencies.  Your Mind is always sane, and we on Earth have vestiges of the insanity of the ego.  I would drop egoic patterns and walk into the sunlight with You.

Thank You for speaking to me in the silence.

Amen.

No Doubt

Dear God,

I reach out to You, and You answer me.  I don’t hear anything, but I do intuit ideas, and I often want to think that the ideas are coming from You. 

It is good to believe in a personal God, reaching up from my depths to soothe me, to give me constancy.  Thank You for the truth that I don’t doubt You.

Amen.

God’s Care

Dear God,

You are always near.  This truth keeps me going day by day.  Your constant care is the balm to heal every pain, the uplift that sets my day aright.  I can’t expect always to feel good, but when I listen to the silence coming from You, my spirits are buoyed.  May I listen to Your silence often today.

Thank You for the benefits You give in daily life.  Life is so daily!  We bloom when we open to You in every hour.

Amen.

Fresh Start to the Day

Dear God,

I awoke sleepy, and the feeling has not abated.  What would you have me do on a day when I want to go back to bed and pull the covers over my head?  I am well, and that is good.  I just can’t get going this morning.

Please give me Your energy.  If You support me physically and emotionally, the day will turn out fine.  I would give You a good day, as You live through me.  Help me to do so.

Thank You for the support that You always give when I ask.

Amen.

Close to God

Dear God,

I ask You to cocoon me this morning.  I ask for the warm and fuzzy feeling that lets me know that You are reaching me from the depths.  I long for a sense of Your companionship.  When I feel close to You, the closeness that I sense is a blessing beyond compare.

You want us to commune with You.  This is the prayer without words in which we listen to what You are trying to say in the silence we hear.  This contemplation is very sweet.  When we get right with You, all things smooth out, and we are walking a green earth.

Thank You for the assurance You give me that You are always with me, living through me.  Help me to give You a good day.

Amen.
