Loving God

Dear God,

I am much in love with You.  I would not know how to love if You hadn’t first loved me.  You soothe me and comfort me, encourage me to be active and to make contributions to Your world.  I will do what I can, but Your holding my hand makes all the difference.

Thank You for the comfort You give to me.  

Amen.

God’s Intent

Dear God,

I think I know that Your universe wouldn’t work unless Love were the underlying Force.  And You are that Love, though You let us depart from You, in free will, if we are rebellious.

May I recognize that Your way is forever the best.  And I know that Your way is easier, for Your way is what was intended in the beginning.  And You love us enough to make it easy on us.

Thank You for holding me by the hand and impressing upon my heart Your devotion.

Amen.

Anniversary

Dear God,

On this day of celebration for my husband and me, may we not forget that it is Your faithfulness that has sustained us.  Your Love for us, and Your faithfulness.  May he and I use You as the model for the same good feelings for each other that You have always had for us.

Thank You for the bond that he and I enjoy.  Thank You for cementing that bond with Your blessing.

Amen.

Pray without Ceasing

Dear God,

Prayer will keep us solid in our trek through life.

I once had a friend whose life was very difficult, many obstacles, many challenges.  And she conquered all of them through constant prayer, and when she died at an advanced age was called a “legend” by those in her circle.

If we endeavor to keep a reverent and loving manner as we go about life, this in itself is a type of prayer, a praying “without ceasing.”

May I remember You and invoke Your goodness, through prayer, as I walk through this day.

Amen.

Harmony / Peace / Love

Dear God,

Please keep me stress-free today.  Your way, which I determined to follow when I was nine years old, is a way of harmony and peace.  I haven’t fully followed You until harmony and peace are a part of me through and through.

Bless me with Your peace, Your harmony, and, most of all, Your Love.

Thank You for creating me in this lifetime as ready and willing to follow You.

Amen.
