Lack of Peace

Dear God,

Many of us have just seen turmoil, anger, a lack of peace in this world.  I long to offer solace to all who are troubled.  You are here for us in every circumstance.  May I remember this.  May my brothers and sisters remember this as well.

But I know that this world is actually illusion, that our projections make for our perception.  May this tenet of A Course in Miracles grant peace to all of us.

Thank You for guiding us through difficult times.  And I know that You will do so.

Amen.

What If?

Dear God,

Let me not get trapped in playing the “what if” game.  The “what if” game is a dead end.  Not something I want to do.  “

Keep me calm and peaceful, living in the present.  As my father told me years ago, “Most things work out well.”  Let me take his words to heart now.

Thank You for staying near, helping me to advance closer to You with every passing day.

Amen.

Closer to God

Dear God,

I am peaceful and relaxed this morning.  So often I push myself to get things done, a holdover from years of being busy nearly always.  But who places these demands on me?  Not You.

I would follow Your way, always and forever.

Thank You for clueing me in to the truth that a slower day may allow me to live closer to You.

Amen.

Pray for Peace

Dear God,

I am very relaxed this morning.  Thank You for keeping me peaceful, even in the midst of all that is troubling our world.  It helps no one to get overwrought about circumstances beyond our control.  Only prayers help.

My prayer today is that the peace I feel can extend in ever-widening circles, beginning with my nearest and dearest, my husband–and then my unseen friends who view this blog.

Thank You for answering this prayer.

Amen.

God’s Calm

Dear God,

When I get away from the world, enjoy our sun/screen porch before breakfast, then the turmoil of the world recedes, and I am at peace with You. Thank You for the way that You calm me.  Thank You for seeing Your world in my backyard, sunny and warm.

Be with me today.  Let me keep the calm that You so generously granted to my mind and heart this morning.

Thank You.

Amen.

Eternity

Dear God,

I am very much interested in integrating all thoughts as they arise from my subconscious mind.  I think this intention will prepare me best for the future in an eternity.  Help me to heal completely, a mind full of peace, a heart full of love.

Thank You for giving me a good day.  I sense that this day will turn out just fine, despite the quarantine.

Amen.

God’s Presence

Dear God,

You soothe me so wonderfully.  When I feel close to You, the things of the world slip away.  I know that I am blessed, and I thank You for my blessings.

Help me to know that You are with me, helping me, just all the time.  You live through me, I know. 

Thank You for Your presence, with which I can handle anything and everything.

Amen.

Relaxation

Dear God,

Help me to be lenient with myself on this relaxed day.  I often think I need to work hard, but this is a holdover from a long time ago.  Help me to listen to my body and be quiet, since that is what my body is asking for today.

If I rest, I will sense You.  If I try to force myself to stay busy, I will miss out on our communion.

Thank You for warning me to take it easy, just this once.

Amen.
