PRAYER



Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred let me bring your love;
Where there is injury, your pardon, Lord;
And where there’s doubt, true faith in you.

Oh, master, grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved, as to love with all my soul.

Make me a Channel of your peace.
Where there’s despair in life let me bring hope;
Where there is darkness, only light;
And where there’s sadness, ever joy

Oh, master, grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved, as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
In giving to all men that we receive;
And in dying that we’re born to eternal life.

St Francis of Assisi.
  Words and music by Sebastian Temple.

FAITH IS STRONGER THAN MY FEARS

Sometimes my cross is hard to bear
for there is darkness everywhere,
and troubles pile around my door
like autumn leaves for evermore.
The morning light seems far away,
like I am stuck in yesterday.
My heart is beating like a drum -
I try to pray, but words won't come.
But then the sun begins to rise
and hope is born within my eyes.
A rainbow forms among my tears
for faith is stronger than my fears.

Hello God...

Hello God, I called tonight

To talk a little while..
I need a friend who'll listen
To my anxiety and trial...

You see, I can't quite make it
Through a day just on my own...
I need your love to guide me,
So I'll never feel alone

I want to ask you please to keep,
My family safe and sound.
Come and fill their lives with confidence
For whatever fate they're bound.

Give me faith, dear God, to face
Each hour throughout the day,
And not to worry over things
I can't change in any way.

I thank you God, for being home
And listening to my call,
For giving me such good advice
When I stumble and fall.

Your number, God, is the only one
That answers every time.
I never get a busy signal,
Never had to pay a dime.

So thank you, God, for listening
To my troubles and my sorrow.
Good night, God, I love You, too,
And I'll call again tomorrow!

Dear God

I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself ...and the fact that I think that I am following Your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe this: I believe that the desire to please You does in fact please You. I hope I have that desire in everything I do. I hope I never persist in anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this You will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it at the time. Therefore I will trust You always, for though I may be lost - and in the shadow of death - I will not be afraid, because I know You will never leave me to face my troubles all alone.

This is the beginning of a new day.
God has given me this day to use as I see fit.
I can waste it, or grow in its light and be of service to others.
But what I do with this day is important because I have exchanged a day of my life for it. 
When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever..
I hope I do not regret the price I paid.

God Boxes of Love

 I have in my hands two boxes
 Which God gave me to hold
 He said, "Put all your sorrows in the black,
 And all your joys in the gold."
 I heeded his words, and in the two boxes
 Both my joys and sorrows I store
 But though the gold became heavier each day
 The black was as light as before
 With curiosity, I opened the black
 I wanted to find out why
 And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole
 Which my sorrows had fallen out by
 I showed the hole to God, and mused aloud,
"I wonder where my sorrows could be."
 He smiled a gentle smile at me.
 "My child, they're all here with me."
 I asked, "God, why give me the boxes,
 Why the gold, and the black with the hole?"
 "My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings,
 the black is for you to let go

Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone--to have a deep soul relationship with another--to be loved thoroughly and exclusively. But God says to us: No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled and content with being loved by Me alone--and giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me--to having an intensely personal and unique relationship with Me alone, discovering that only in Me is your own satisfaction to be found, will you be capable of the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you. You will never be united with another until you are united with Me- exclusive of anyone or anything else, exclusive of any desires or longings.

I want you to have the best. Please allow Me to bring it to you. You just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things. Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am. Keep listening and learning the things that I tell you. You just wait. That's all. Don't be anxious, don't worry. Don't look around at the things others have gotten or that I've given them.

Don't look at the things you think that you want. You just keep looking off and away up to Me, or you'll miss what I want to show you. And then, when you're ready, I'll surprise you with a love far more wonderful than any you would dream of. You see, until you are ready, and until the one I have for you is ready, until you are both satisfied exclusively with Me and the life I have prepared for you, you won't be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me and thus the perfect love. And, dear one, I want you to have this wonderful love. I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your everlasting union of beauty, perfection and love that I offer you with Myself.

Know that I love you utterly, and that I am the King. Believe it and be satisfied.

Your friend,
God

To believe is to know that every day is a new beginning.
It is to trust that miracles happen, and dreams really do come true.
To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds
To know the wonder of a stardust sky and the wisdom of the man in the moon.
To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,
The innocence of a child's eyes and the beauty of an aging hand, for it is through their teachings we learn to love.
To believe is to find the strength and courage that lies within us.
When it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again.
To believe is to know we are not alone,
That life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it.
To believe is to know that wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen,
And all our hopes and dreams are within reach.

"If only we believe"
