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.

In God’s Heart

Dear God,

I am comforted just by the thought of You.  Nothing in this world provides any solace, at least for very long—for we accepted challenges when we were born here.  Nothing changes that.  We must walk through life unaided until we turn to You.

Keep me closeted in the pocket to Your heart.  You have a space for each of us in Your heart, and it is a good space, warm and good and life-affirming.  Thank You.

Amen.

Comfort

Dear God,

Please clear my mind.  My day seemed to begin in an awry fashion, and I would have You correct that.  I want this to be a good day, through and through.  I know that You are always with me, helping me.  You untangle the knots in my mind by letting my heart speak to me.

Let my heart speak to me today.  Keep coming with Your comfort.

I appreciate that You know we don’t stay the same all the time, and some days we just seem to need You more. 

Amen.

A Course in Miracles

Dear God,

I have returned to A Course in Miracles, my lifeline to good living since I was in my thirties.  A seeming miracle on my wedding day supported my decision to give its words a central place in my life. 

The way back to You is easy when we follow Your advice.  Thank You for the gift of ACIM and other volumes that have followed.

Keep my mind steady, my heart warm.  If conflict seems to arise in me, please be tolerant of my slip-ups.   

Thank You for holding me in the palm of Your hand.

Amen.

Resting in God

Dear God,

When I rest in Your grace, just being quiet in Your presence, I am rewarded with a mellow feeling of Your Love.  I sense the “peace that passeth understanding.” 

Keep my mind and heart close to You today, as every day.  I give myself to You without reserve and without conditions.

Thank You for staying near, living through me with the assurance that all is well.

Amen.

Peace

Dear God,

After a good night’s sleep, my mind is calm and my heart is at ease.  Gratitude is very, very important to our well-being, and I feel very grateful to You today for the many blessings which rain down upon my head.

May this day and this week proceed smoothly.  May I reach out to others in loving kindness.  Thank You for prompting me to do so.

Amen.

A Lift

Dear God,

This day brings a lifted mood to me, the product of much light now that it is spring.  The seasons change, and we benefit thereby.  Thank You for a varying experience with our everyday weather.

It is beneficial to feel a lifted mood, so long as it is natural and not overblown into thoughts that are uncertain and ineffective.  Keep my mind on an even keel today.  Keep my heart loving You and all Your creations.

I appreciate knowing that You hold me close.

Amen.
