Nature

Dear God,

It is with a grateful heart that I enjoy our porch this morning.  Nearby a bluebird is nesting, other birds sing or zoom about in the air.  It is indeed a marvelous spring morning, bright sunshine, balmy air.

Thank You for the beauty of nature.  I enjoy the natural in Your world.

Amen.

Contentment

Dear God,

I feel fundamentally content.  My mind and heart are at rest as I write, and life feels good.  Be with me for a relaxed and peaceful day.

Happiness is sometimes fleeting; contentment is its gentler cousin.  May I woo the gentler cousin today.

Amen.

Uplifted Mind & Heart

Dear God,

I want to banish negativity from my mind, for it immobilizes me and gives me sadness during the day.  If I keep my mind and heart uplifted, I am happy.  That tells me that negativity is the bad guy.

For this day, I choose You.  There is only positivity in You.  Influence me to have that same positivity.

Thank You.

Amen.

Re-Surrender

Dear God,

I want to re-surrender to You every day.  It is the only way to head toward Awakening, something I want very much.  Cleanse my mind of subconscious and conscious egocentricity.  If the ego is gone, then my mind is swept clean for Your guidance to steam in.

Be with me this day.  Help me to remember my aim to re-surrender whenever I think of You.

Thank You.

Amen.

Aliveness

Dear God,

Give me good energy today to be about my Monday activities, always a busy day.  There is nothing so pressing that I can’t get out of it.  But I will do better if I stay in the saddle.

Aliveness and energy are necessary in our busy world.  But let me remember You, and Your peace and harmony, and the fact that You never rush to get anything done.

Thank You.

Amen.

Worry

Dear God,

Assist me in ridding my “little” mind of worry.  It should not be hard to live in the Now with You.  When I manage to do so, I walk a green earth.

My grandmother used to tell me that I came by my worry honestly, because her mother, my great-grandmother, was a worrier.  But worry doubts that You are in control, and I know that You are, and I surrender to You anew today.

Thank You.

Amen.
