Joyful Reading

Dear God,

Thank You for the many books that I keep on my kindle.  I bring up one after the other, many of which are inspirational to me and set my thinking straight for the day.  Keep my mind and heart attuned to You.

Be with me all the day through.  Let me share my good feeling in a way that will help my nearest and dearest.

I appreciate Your touching me with Your joyous spirit.

Amen.

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.

Relax & Surrender

Dear God,

Following the advice in a good book, I am inviting subconscious fears and anxieties to come up, then relaxing and surrendering to You.  I find this procedure healing.

Thank You for the advice in good books.  Thank You for the skill we take for granted—just being able to read and thereby discover more about our world and ourselves.

Amen.

Conversations with God

Dear God,

When I find books to read that give me a good frame of mind, I return to those books over and over.  Thank You for guiding my selection of what to read.  It is one way that You talk to me.

Thank You for Your constant care.  I enjoy our conversations, with You “speaking” always in silence, and me hearing in the silence the next right step.

Amen.

Reading and Other Blessings

Dear God,

I got an armload of interlibrary loan books from my public library this morning.  It is such a blessing to live in an era with reading available.  Whatever would I do in all the past centuries, when no books were available?

I live in a blessed world, even with all the major problems that exist.  It is up to me to remember to be thankful for what I have, not focus on what is wrong with our world, unless I can directly make changes that will help another person.

Thank You for another good day.

Amen.

Reading

Dear God,

I have been reading Neale Donald Walsch and his Conversations with God.  Enlightening.  He also projects You outward, and imagines conversations that You might have with him, and us.

I appreciate the reading that You have brought into my little world.  I appreciate knowing about A Course in Miracles, A Course of Love, The Way of Mastery.  All of these readings inform my prayers to You.

Keep me close today.

Thank You.

Amen.

Slow Start

Dear God,

I’m having a slow start to my morning, relaxing in my easy chair after breakfast.  I need this time with You each and every morning, and I need never to leave You in my thoughts.  My subconscious continues to be merged with You, even when I turn my attention to my day.

I will read quietly for a little bit.  I am reluctant to get very far away from Your soothing ways with me.

Thank You for offering me Your best.

Amen.
