Bad Weather

Dear God,

We have forecasted stormy weather today.  May the turmoil of changing weather keep us, nevertheless, safe.

May people in my vicinity take cover, do nothing foolish. 

The stormy weather will pass.  Thank You for giving me serenity, despite the weather.

Amen.

Living in the Present

Dear God,

What a delight it actually is to live in the present!  If we don’t visit future fears or past regrets, we are safe in the moment.  Our peace is secured!  We are home with You.

Grant me the patience to live in the moment.  I won’t turn to fantasies of future or past, and I will dwell in Your company, in the present.

Thank You for giving me this insight.

Amen.

Growth

Dear God,

I want to consistently keep an upbeat attitude.  Not to do so is actually dishonoring You, You Who give me so much.

Keep me safe in Your arms, safe and filled with gratitude for the blessings You have bestowed upon me over the years.  The problems of life are meant for evolutionary progress, and even angels tell us that we need to grow.

Let me understand that growth is its own reward.  Thank You for all You have given me, the growth that you are fostering in me.  Give me patience to “hear” what You would tell me in the silence.

Amen.

Coping

Dear God,

I can cope, and I will cope. This morning has some unknowns, but with You having my back, I will progress through the morning easily.

You always have my back. With this knowledge–and it IS knowledge–what have I to fear from an illusory world? I live only in the real world.

Thank You for the safety only You can give.

Amen.

Safety

Dear God,

Safety has always been a concern of mine, and now the world seems very uncertain.  Uncertainty is a characteristic of this world, but when I put my trust in You, I am reassured that You are right here with me—living life through me, experiencing what I am experiencing.

Your emotional support is very, very important to my successful navigation in my little world.  Thank You for granting me the assurance that You are always with me, leading my navigation.

Amen.

Safety

Dear God,

I want to be safe, maybe too much.  Does it hinder You in acting with me to know that my safety needs seem so large?

I used not to know that this was a safe universe, a friendly universe.  When I was in my early teen years, I used to lie awake at night and wonder about just that.  Why didn’t I love You more?  I was afraid of You.

Now that is all in the past.  Long ago I realized that I live in a friendly universe, that You are out there and also within me, just looking to guide–when I will let You.

I will let You today.  Keep me wrapped up in Your cocoon of love, knowing that whatever might happen, I truly am safe.  Because You deem it so.

Amen.
