November’s Prayer To Go

Psalm 40

Thanksgiving for Deliverance

and Prayer for Help

from Psalms for Praying, Nan C. Merrill

I waited patiently for the Beloved,

who heard my cry and came to me.

Love raised me from the pits of despair,

out of confusion and fear,

and set my feet upon a rock,

making my steps secure.

There is a new song in my mouth,

a song of praise to the Beloved. 

May many see and rejoice,

may they put their trust in Love.

Blessed are those who make Love their home,

who do not turn to the proud,

to those who follow false idols!

O Beloved, how wondrous are your gifts to us;

Your thoughts are beyond our imagination.

What joy to live in Oneness with You!

Were we to proclaim and tell of Your beauty and blessed grace, who could measure it?

Psalm of Contentment

O sacred season of Autumn, be my teacher,
for I wish to learn the virtue of contentment.
As I gaze upon your full-colored beauty,
I sense all about you
An at-homeness with your amber riches.

(Modern Prayer by Edward Hays, USA)

Deep Peace

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.

July 2019 Prayer To Go

A Summer Prayer  

Long warm days…
The pace of life slows…
A time for picnics and

rest in the shade…

Lord,
help me to rest awhile in the cooling shade of your presence.
Slow down my restless heart and fill me with gentle compassion for all your people.

Amen.

Prayers To Go

God’s Spirit …
brings new dreams
God’s Spirit …
brings new life
God’s Spirit …
brings love
God’s Spirit …
brings hope
God’s Spirit …
be with you. 
Amen.

May Prayer To Go

Pilgrimage Blessing

God, be with us in every valley,

Jesus, be with us on every hill,

Holy Spirit, be with us on every stream,

every cliff’s edge,

every green pasture;

every moor and meadow,

in the crest of the waves on the sea.

Each time we rest,

and each time we wake up;

God, be with us every step we take. From Carmina Gadelica

April Prayer To Go

Dear Lord,

I know that I am commanded

to abide in You and I desire to

live my life, day by day simply

resting and abiding in You.

Teach me Lord HOW to abide

in You so that all that is of myself

will shrivel away as the Spirit of

Christ pulses through my being.  

AMEN

Lent

Lent

God of Goodness and Mercy,

Hear my prayer as I begin this Lenten journey with you. Let me be honest with myself as I look into my heart and soul, noticing the times I turn away from you. Guide me as I humbly seek to repent and return to your love.

May humility guide my efforts to be reconciled with you and live forever in your abundant grace.

Transform me this Lent, heavenly Father. Give me the strength to commit myself to grow closer to you each day.

Amen.

Praying Together

“To pray together,

in whatever tongue or ritual,

is the most tender union

of hope and sympathy

that we can contract

in this life.”
