a prayer I love


Recommended Posts

a prayer I love, that not everyone has access to:

"Lord, I offer myself to you, to build with me and to with me as you will. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do your will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of your power, your love, and your way of life. May I do your will, always. Amen." "The Big Book", p. 63

when I am feeling depleted, as I am today, it helps me immeasurably.

Prayer for Patience

(Thomas Fuller)

Lord, teach me the art of patience whilst I am well,

and give me the use of it when I am sick.

In that day either lighten my burden or strengthen my back.

Make me, who so often in my health have discovered my weakness presuming on my own strength, to be

strong in my sickness when I solely rely on Thy

I love that prayer!

Also, love the prayer of St. Francis:

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

and where there is sadness, joy.

O, Divine Master,

grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console;

to be understood as to understand;

to be loved as to love;

for it is in giving that we receive;

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

love, Cindi o'h
