My LORD's Prayer:
LORD, we ask of YOU through the body of Christ for love and peace that begin with us and spread for eternity. We do not ask for material things because we know that YOU have provided us the ability in daily helpings to get that which will sustain us for as long as we are meant to be. We thank YOU each day for granting our request.
LORD, we also pray for the strength and determination to surrender ourselves to YOUR will that is manifest in that which we know of Christ; so as to cultivate in us a sensitivity to and trust in the Holy Spirit that is given space in the core of our being; so as to empower us to discern YOUR leading in each and every moment; and in following this leading, we tearfully and gleefully yearn to be even a mere brushstroke on YOUR canvas of universal beauty.
When it is night and we look back on today,
Did we praise GOD spontaneously?
Did we make any enemies knowingly?
Did we ponder on how we could help someone in distress?
Did we help anyone perspire any less?
Did we take stock of our life, reducing material things to mere dust?
Did we add warmth and peace where there was coldness and fuss?
Did we cause someone to smile or laugh to joyous tears?
Did we prepare for our own death without any fears?
Did we inspire anyone to do good like we knew they should?
Did we paint a picture of Christ who for everyone he stood?
Did we shine the light of Christ to help someone see?
Again, did we praise GOD spontaneously?
right to us.
GOD is the definition of existence.
